Chris Froome (Team Sky) gave the thumbs up as he left the medical centre after crashing on stage four of the Tour de France. Doctors said that there was no break visible on the x-ray, but a further examination would be needed to confirm that diagnosis.

Born in Ireland to a cycling family and later moved to the Isle of Man, so there was no surprise when I got into the sport. Studied sports journalism at university before going on to do a Masters in sports broadcast. After university I spent three months interning at Eurosport, where I covered the Tour de France. In 2012 I started at Procycling Magazine, before becoming the deputy editor of Procycling Week. I then joined Cyclingnews, in December 2013.
