So according to ITV he threw a bidon at Froome whom he erroneously blamed for the Crash . When this happened previously it was DQ offence ?
Been DQs in the past with people throwing bottles, don't see how this is any different. Would certainly take away from the race though. That said, if he does get thrown out, Nibali will win a GT this year, compared to none if he doesn't :p
 
There are a few possible explanations.

1. A skinny guy fell over him. He thought it was Froome when in fact it was Barguil.
2. The yellow jersey caused the crash. He thought it was Froome when in fact it was Tony Martin
3. Valverde told him it was Froome.
4. Froome told him "It wasn't me". Nibali doesn't understand English well. He understood "It was me"
5. Nibali isn't tranquillo any more.

Can someone give me a summary of what exactly happened between them?

I mean did he threw bottles or not? lol

Would be hilarious if he did and i'm not surprised he accused froome. The guys is a donkey on a bike
Lol stop this trolling with Froome bike handling,he showed with the Katusha guy and with Nibali today that he's pretty decent.

Froome speaks perfect Italian so there was no language barrier involved.

6. Nibali reads this forum, so thinks Froome is a bad bike handler and automatically blamed him. :p

do you have a link to a video showing Nibali throw a bottle? would be very interesting to see
http://www.biciciclismo.com/es/tour-el-triunfo-de-stybar-y-la-caida-final-video-09-07-2015

Go to 1:46 on the video and you can see Nibali lobbing the bottle at Froome (He has an Astana rider either side of him but the national bands give him away). About 7 seconds later on the video you see Froome mouthing something at Nibali and the bidon is just in front of Froome's bike.

I couldn't see this. Maybe I was looking in the wrong place? 5 times I still couldn't see it. How did Nibali manage that if Froome managed to ride away after the bump? Pretty impressive arm if he managed to throw a water bottle (near empty I'd imagine) at a stick 100m away from him. Maybe it's just me, but I don't believe it, I just can't see the actual bottle, and at I swear 1:46 Nibali has his arms on his bike? Help me actually see it, thanks :)

I can't see it either, well I see something happening in that Astana group but I can't see what.

I could see the bottle pretty clearly. However, it's hard too see if he actually throws it at Froome , but given the following events, it's not impossible. And Froome did not rode away after the crash even though he didn't hit the ground. He stopped for some reason.

Froome was stopped on the right side of the road, not too far ahead
 
Of course Nibali threw it at Froome. Nibali said himself that he was (wrongly) very angry with Froome immediately after the crash and you can see the bidon on the floor right in front of Froome.

Froome then ends up going around to the Astana bus to complain. 2+2 equals 4 in this case.
 
I see something, but Nibali has blue bidons, the thing I saw was yellow-ish. Also not sure about the second bit about a bidon at Froome's feet, is that even Froome? Something happened but I don't really know what. Has Froome said anything?

Yes, it's Froome. I've just watched it back on the highlights programme on a widescreen TV in HD and the incident is as clear as day.
