Chris Froome’s six-hour operation following a high-speed crash on Wednesday has been described as a “success” by his team.
Britain’s four-time Tour de France champion, 34, suffered a fractured right femur, a broken hip, a fractured elbow and fractured ribs and lost consciousness following the crash.
Froome is awake and doctors are “very happy with his progress”.
Team Ineos said he will remain in hospital for the next few days.
The crash occurred during a practice ride before stage four of the Criterium du Dauphine in Roanne, France.
