At the top of the highest climb in this year’s Tour de France Chris Froome’s wobble made Geraint Thomas’s day. From the Pyrenees to Paris there should be no more rivalry at Team Sky, no more leadership puzzles for the concluding days in this race.

“Obviously I didn’t want him to have a bad day, like he did,” Thomas said after watching Froome struggle. “It just gave me confidence, that someone of his stature was struggling.”
