Tour de France: Video captures spectator spitting on Froome

Race leader had previously been doused with urine

Chris Froome (Sky) had another eventful day at the Tour de France during stage 19, but attacks from Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) and Nairo Quintana (Movistar) weren't the only aggression he had to deal with on the road.

Danish TV2 Sport captured video of a spectator first flipping off the race leader and then spitting on him. The TV network posted a video of the assault on its Twitter feed, and reaction among the public has been swift in condemning the offending person's actions.

Froome previously reported that a spectator doused him with urine during stage 14, prompting the race to ask spectators to respect the riders.
