UAE Team Emirates' Diego Ulissi has been given the green light to resume training after the heart tests he underwent.

At the start of the year, the Emirati team informed that the rider showed an abnormal heart rhythm during a routine medical evaluation. Days later, he underwent an electrophysiological study that showed positive results for the rider, and after some days he has been given the green light to return to the bike.

"The results of the cardiac biopsy carried out on Diego Ulissi on January 21 at the Riuniti hospital in Ancona, Italy excluded congenital cardiomyopathies and confirmed an older myocarditis, likely of viral origin, whose etiological agent has not been identified," stated UAE Team Emirates through a press note.

"The biopsy found the absence of risky arrhythmias for the athlete during the electrophysiological study, which will allow for the progressive resumption of training."

The Italian rider -who has won eight stages of the Giro d'Italia and has taken the overall victories of races like the Tour of Slovenia and the Tour of Turkey- will be monitored periodically before his definitive return to racing.
