Chris Froome has emerged from the recent controversies surrounding Team Sky and British Cycling in a strong position, according to former pro and Olympic gold medallist Chris Boardman.

Boardman has said that triple Tour de France winner Froome now appears to be comfortable in the role as 'statesman of the sport' having given a measured response to the furore over the use of therapeutic use exemption (TUE) certificates and the 'mystery package' delivered to Team Sky for Bradley Wiggins during the 2011 Critérium du Dauphiné.
