Dutchman Tom Dumoulin (Sunweb) says "the GC is gone" after his crash and four-minute time loss in the Giro d'Italia's stage four to Frascati.

Dumoulin crashed with many others as the race's longest stage, 235km, neared its end south of Rome. He climbed back on his bike with blood running down his left knee but the other race favourites were speeding ahead, including race leader Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma).
