Chris Froome has confirmed that he suffered fractures to his left wrist and right hand in the crashes that forced him to withdraw from this year’s Tour de France.
The 29-year-old headed into the race with high hopes of repeating his victory 12 months ago, only for his plans to be dashed with three falls in quick succession.
Froome fell heavily on Tuesday’s fourth stage before going down twice more on wet roads the very next day.
