According to the statement of his team leaders, he suffers from internal bleeding and therefore will not be able to continue.

Yesterday he was examined at a hospital, and although he returned to the hotel to celebrate the achievement with his teammates, he will not be able to continue.

"I have to give the eye a rest," he explained, "Yesterday I came back from the hospital a little sad about what happened with the champagne, but then I was able to celebrate with my friends."
