Tony Martin has said that he is 'totally angry' that Chris Froome and Team Sky appear to have been given favourable treatment over Froome's adverse analytical finding for salbutamol at the 2017 Vuelta a España.

Publishing a strongly-worded statement on his personal Facebook account, German Katusha-Alpecin rider Martin said that a 'double standard' has been applied to Froome and that he should not have been allowed to ride at the 2017 World Championships.
