Chris Froome, the British cyclist, has been rammed off the road by a hit-and-run driver. The Tour de France winner and Olympic medalist’s bike was left badly damaged by an “impatient” motorist.
Froome, who lives in Monaco, said he was “okay” after being deliberately hit by a driver who is said to have followed him onto the pavement. He posted a picture on Twitter on Tuesday morning of his crumpled road bike after it was “totaled”:
“Just got rammed on purpose by an impatient driver who followed me onto the pavement! Thankfully I’m okay 🙏 Bike totaled. Driver kept going!”
