Accustomed to major events on France Télévisions for several years, Laurent Luyat has just experienced a blow. A few days before the arrival of the Tour de France in Paris, which took place this Sunday, July 24, the journalist and host was forced to abandon the Big Loop. The presenter of Vélo Club, on France 2, had declared on his Twitter account, Thursday July 21: “Friends, for health concerns (not serious) I will not be able to finish the Tour. I am sorry. It’s never happened to me, it’s funny. Thank you for all the good times spent together“.
Benefiting from the support of cycling enthusiasts and sports enthusiasts, the Grenoblois wanted to give some news: “Thank you so much for all your messages. The sadness at the airport to also leave this magnificent team. But nothing serious, that’s the main thing. A few days off and you’ll be fine.“. After the arrival of the Tour de France, the one that tennis fans find every year at Roland Garros wanted to reassure his subscribers on social networks. “Thank you thank you for all your messages, very touching. It was a pleasure to see you at the stage finishes. Sorry again for this unfinished ending that I could not avoid. It will get better soon,” he wrote.
Enough to generate comments in shambles. “Bjr to you Laurent, I’m shocked that no sign of friendship, of thanks…. Have been made to your attention during this last stage of the Tour….. Wishing you a speedy recovery and congratulations for these accounts- daily reports and your professionalism”, “Looking forward to seeing you soon to comment on and energize the sport with all your teams!”, “Good recovery and thank you for the Tour as well as the whole France tv team I enjoyed this tour and all your comments come back to us quickly and good luck”.
