Musicians, actors, athletes, journalists and more media personalities did not miss the moment of joy that the country lives on behalf of the title obtained by the Colombian in the Giro d’Italia 2021, and they took the opportunity to congratulate the rider for getting the second trophy of this important race for Colombia.
Most of these celebrities emphasized how timely this achievement is for national cycling at a time when Colombia is experiencing a complex public order situation within the framework of the national strike and the protests that are taking place in the country in this regard.
Among the congratulatory messages stood out that of Carlos Vives, who dedicated to Egan Bernal his song ‘The pride of my country’. The Niche group also celebrated with Colombian music, while the singers Greeicy Rendon, Juanes, Santiago Cruz and Silvestre Dangond, among others, expressed their appreciation with heartfelt words.
Thank you for bringing the name of our Country up high 🙌🏿 pic.twitter.com/6wi0uod8z3

Among the messages of pride, there were also those of actors such as Lincoln Palomeque, Martha Isabel Bolaños (the remembered ‘Pupuchurra’ from ‘Betty, the ugly’) and Julian Roman (who leaked, inadvertently and in full live, the number of Santiago Alarcón).
The journalists were not far behind, and Melissa Martinez, Andrea Guerrero and the international Angela Patricia Janiot, among others, they also made themselves felt on social networks with expressions of national pride.
THANK YOU EGAN BERNAL 💓💓
