Spectator wanted on the Tour de France: Laurent Luyat, trapped by fake news, makes a huge blunder

The investigation to find the spectator with the sign which caused a very big fall during the first stage of the Tour de France continues. Only, Tuesday, June 29, 2021, Laurent Luyat was taken in by a fake news and mistakenly announced his arrest.

Laurent Luyat did not understand the joke and announced, by mistake, the arrest of the actively sought-after spectator on the Tour de France. Indeed, Tuesday June 29, 2021, while commenting on the new stage of the Grande Boucle, he called on his consultant, Yoann Offredo, assuring him that the woman in the yellow oilskin had been arrested. “Yoann, we might have found the person holding up the sign. We are checking the information“, he told him.”Visibly, she would have been found in Glasgow, it will not be the soap opera of the summer“, confirmed the former professional cyclist.”It is AFP, apparently, which announces this“Laurent Luyat added to ensure that it was reliable information. However, the reality is quite different. The journalist simply said fooled by a joke he did not understand.

The two cycling enthusiasts were fooled by a humorous tweet posted by Tremechan the day before. “[DERNIÈRE MINUTE] the spectator with the Omi-Opi sign has just been arrested at Glasgow airport by the Scottish police. (source: AFP)“, he had tweeted. He would never have thought that such a message was taken at face value. He was referring to the arrest of Guy Joao, confused with Xavier Dupont de Ligonnès in October 2019, when he got off the plane in Glasgow.

Where is the investigation of the Tour de France spectator?

Thus, the most wanted woman in Finistère, after having caused an impressive fall during the first stage of the Tour de France because of her sign, has still not been found. But the public prosecutor of Brest, Camille Miansoni, assured that things were progressing well. “I can not give more elements, we are confident.”
