The yellow jersey will be absent on stage seven of the Tour de France after Chris Froome confirmed that he would not wear it, despite technically holding the race lead.

Tony Martin crashed in the maillot jaune in the late stages of stage six, but continued to the finish line and was awarded the same time as his original group, thus kept the jersey overnight.
