Defending champion Geraint Thomas says he will be fit to take part in the Tour de France despite crashing out of the Tour of Switzerland and being taken to hospital on Tuesday.

Team Ineos said the Welshman suffered "abrasions to his shoulder and a cut above his right eye", but the 33-year-old escaped serious injury.

"Clearly it's frustrating and a small setback," said Thomas.

"But there's plenty of time before we start in Brussels [on 6 July]".

Thomas is expected to lead Team Ineos at the Tour de France after team-mate Chris Froome was badly injured in crash at the Criterium du Dauphine last week, ruling him out of action for at least six months.
