Italians Play WRONG Spanish Anthem

Giro organisers were red (wrong word) faced after they played the old facist Spanish national anthem 'La Marcha Granadera' of the Franco era instead of the 'Marcha Real' of modern democratic Spain for Alberto Contadors victory ceremony.

On a serious note, they had over a LONG to get this ready, its not like it was a surprise that they had to play the Spanish anthum.

That's funny. Well, unless you're Spanish. Then it would be insulting.
