BBC Sport - Tour de France: Chris Froome is a 'pitbull' says team-mate Luke Rowe

Team-mate Rowe hails 'pitbull' Froome

Team Sky's Luke Rowe says team-mate and leader of the Tour de France Chris Froome is a "pitbull" in his determination to win after a thrilling stage 20 on Alpe d'Huez.

Rowe also says fans who have physically and verbally abused Froome are "the scum of the earth".

Briton and MTN-Qhubeka rider Steve Cummings sends his congratulations to Team Sky ahead of the last day on Sunday.

The short 21st stage, which culminates in several laps around the centre of Paris, is expected to end in a bunch sprint on the Champs-Elysees and Froome only has to cross the finish line within 72 seconds of Quintana to be crowned champion.
