Beausoleil - Reigning Tour de France champion Chris Froome filed a report to police on Tuesday alleging that he was deliberately "rammed" off his bicycle by a hit-and-run driver while training in southern France.

The British rider posted a picture of his badly damaged bike on Twitter but said he had escaped injury during the incident near his home in Monaco.

"Just got rammed on purpose by an impatient driver who followed me onto the pavement!" tweeted the 31-year-old Froome, a three-time winner of the Tour, road cycling's most prestigious race.
