(July 7, 2014) – Italian cyclist Vincenzo Nibali was understandably excited about winning Stage 2 in the Tour de France Sunday.

The girl on the podium next to him wasn’t quite as enthralled.

Video showed the 29-year-old Nibali receiving flowers and leaning in for the customary victory smooch. The woman on one side obliges; the girl on the other side leaves him hanging.

It’s possible the timing wasn’t right–the woman turns around to retrieve a plush toy for the cyclist after giving him flowers.

Nibali played it off pretty well, making it look like he’s adjusting his collar. He then gives the stuff lion a kiss instead.
