Castrogiovanni suspended after Vegas photos

Date published: April 26 2016

Racing 92 prop Martin Castrogiovanni has been suspended by the club pending an investigation after he was pictured in Las Vegas last weekend.

Castrogiovanni had told the club that he had to attend a family health matter in Argentina and as a result did not travel with the rest of the Racing squad for their Champions Cup semi-final win over Leicester Tigers in Nottingham.

Instead the Italy international was spotted partying in Las Vegas with a number of players from French football champions PSG.

A club statement read: "Following the publication in the media of photographs showing Martin Castrogiovanni with Paris Saint Germain footballers this weekend at a hotel in Las Vegas, while the entire Racing squad was in Nottingham to contest a European Cup semi-final, Racing 92 have decided to suspend the player as a precautionary measure prior to launching legal proceedings."
