CHRIS FROOME was left furious with a policeman after being dragged to the ground in a case of mistaken identity.
The Team Sky cyclist was knocked off his bike when the officer thought he was a supporter trying to ride the course as he returned to the team bus.
It only summed up Froome’s day as he struggles for a podium place.
The four-time champion has been forced to hand the Team Sky leadership to Geraint Thomas after falling 48 seconds behind the Welshman.
Froome put on his rain jacket after finishing stage 17 in eighth place and was heading for the bus when a policeman attempted to stop him.
The Brit was not expecting to be impeded and fell to the floor but the 33-year-old was left unharmed.
