Thomas ready to lead - Brailsford

Team Sky boss Sir Dave Brailsford says Geraint Thomas is ready to lead a cycling team after his performances at this year's Tour de France.

He describes the Welshman as the ultimate team player who is there to support Chris Froome's bid to win the tour for a second time.

Thomas is a two-time Olympic team pursuit champion and won the road race at last year's Commonwealth Games.
