Tour de France champion Chris Froome does not take issue with his data being leaked by Russian hackers over night and says that it only confirms his previous statements on Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUE).

Team Sky's star and Bradley Wiggins were part a group of 25 athletes who had their data stolen from the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and published by hackers known as 'Fancy Bears'. It was the second such leak this week involving athletes from the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics.
