The Tour de France stage winner was arrested hours before Sunday’s race in Wollongong where the 27-year-old was one of the favourites.Van der Poel had confronted two girls – grabbing one on the arm and pushing the other – after he says they repeatedly knocked on his hotel door on Saturday night and ran away.

The grandson of famed French cyclist Raymond Poulidor was to lead the Dutch team in Sunday’s 266.9km race but withdrew within the first 30km. Bauke Mollema finished best placed for the Netherlands in 25th.“He [Van der Poel] admits he dealt with it inappropriately but still there’s an explanation,” criminal lawyer Michael Bowe said.
