Convinced of doping at the EPO at the 2008 Tour de France and removed for life last December for using a blood autotransfusion in 2011, former cyclist Riccardo Riccò has made headlines again.
On Wednesday, the Italian spoke on his Facebook account against compulsory vaccination. A publication that he subsequently removed but that Internet users have been able to recover and run on social networks.
“I see a lot of people saying the vaccine should be mandatory,” Riccò wrote. “Is this a joke !? I do what I want with my body and no one can force me to do anything that could have negative effects on my body. So get yourself injected, I don’t know what shit, but don’t annoy people like me who have informed themselves (with friendly doctors) and who don’t want to be vaccinated. “
