Via a video message on YouTube, Sagan said: "I sincerely apologise to Maja for what I did on the podium yesterday after the race because it was wrong of me. I never should have done it.

"I am so sorry and I hope that Maja and anyone else I have offended knows how sorry I am and accept my apology. I promise to act more respectfully in the future."

Sagan came second in the race.
