Giro company rocked by missing cash

The Giro d'Italia, which starts in Belfast next year, is plunged into crisis days before the announcement of the 2014 route.

Race director Michele Acquarone has been suspended from his role as chief operating officer at the company that organises the Giro, RCS Sport.

It was revealed on Monday that up to £11m was missing from the firm's books.

It's not yet clear what effect - if any - the controversy will have on next year's race.
