“I was in my ex-wife’s apartment to put my son to bed. I had a few glasses of wine, and then I decided to return to my apartment, even though the night curfew had already begun. But I needed to go home because that’s my address for random anti-doping checks. “ said Sagan.

Sagan is not an antivax, he is vaccinated

“My brother took me on an electric scooter 500 meters to my apartment. I didn’t drive or we didn’t go by car, so they didn’t test us for alcohol. But the police wanted to take me to the hospital and do a drug test that I didn’t understand. That’s why I was angry, that’s why I pushed the cop. However, I am very sorry about the whole incident, “added the Slovak cyclist.

Sagan’s lawyers originally played the situation in the car, saying that the athlete was afraid of compulsory vaccination. However, he himself emphasized that he was not against vaccination and he himself underwent vaccination. He had a positive coronavirus test in February 2021 and later, during the summer, underwent vaccination, so he holds a valid covid passport.
