The Pope to Baptise Peter Sagan's Son Marlon in Rome

World Champion and family to travel to the Vatican with Marlon for his baptism after the Tour Down Under

Peter Sagan and his wife Katarina gave birth to their first child, Marlon, 3 months agao.

The three time world champion will be accompanied by his wife Katarina, his sister and mother, and his son Marlon, who Sagan hopes will be baptised by Pope Francis as part of the visit.

Sagan  is currently in Australia preparing for the Tour Down Under which starts on Sunday with a criterium and the first stage on Tuesday.

According to Italian sports newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport the family will make the trip to the Vatican City on January 24, 

Sagan will be treated to a private visit inside the Sistine Chapel, and will present Pope Francis with a custom Specialized Venge that will reflect white light in the dark and will be enriched by unique details, such as logos of the Vatican, the Papal coat of arms and the Argentine flag on the frame together with the name Francesco.”

After completing the Tour Down Under and meeting the Pope, Sagan will travel for a high-altitude training camp in the Sierra Nevada in southern Spain, before heading to Belgium for the first of the cobbled Classics at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad on February 24.

Sagan's will no doubt hope the blessings allow him to improve on his 2017 Classics season, his only win was at Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne and fatefully crashing at the Tour of Flanders.
