Vincenzo Nibali has reacted to the news of the adverse result in Chris Froome's tests during the 2017 Vuelta a España with skepticism.

The Italian, who was second in the General Classification of the 2017 edition of the Spanish Grand Tour, is cautious but has some thoughts to share about this case. "I read the news and the reaction of Chris and his team. It's too early to express a thought," he told Italian website tuttobiciweb during the Bahrain-Merida camp in Croatia.

"On those days it was raining in Spain, so it is difficult to suffer from asthma. I have the same problem, but when it rains, the pollen don't bother me and I don't even need to use the inhalator of Ventolin (Salbutamol)."

Nibali finished second at the Vuelta a España at two minutes and 15 seconds from Froome. "Certainly it is very bad news for the sport and also for me. If that positive gets confirmed, no one will give me the thrill of winning the Vuelta and getting on the top step of the podium in Madrid."
