"I'm not happy about it. Obviously not one second
I'm happy about it. It happened yesterday in the practice, too," a
ruffled Federer told reporters, adding that organisers had apologised.
Froome took to Twitter, writing: Wonder what RF would have to say about ASO security on Alpe d'Huez?Give me a couple of kids wanting selfies any time
Froome then posted a picture of him riding in the yellow jersey with a a fan letting off a flare in close proximity.
