Britain’s Geraint Thomas has been forced to abandon the Tour de France after crashing on stage nine.

The Team Sky rider, one of race leader Chris Froome’s key helpers in the mountains, came off on a descent.

Welshman Thomas, who was second overall at the start of the stage, has a suspected broken collarbone, according to the Tour’s official website.

He won stage one of this year’s race and wore the leader’s yellow jersey until Froome took it after stage five.

Thomas also crashed out of the Giro d’Italia in May, when he was Team Sky’s race leader.
