Michal Kwiatkowski has led Team Sky's Chris Froome through the Tour de France's mountains and out of some sticky situations so far, and says "Froome is thanking him a couple of times a day."

Froome holds a slender lead ahead of three riders tightly packed in the general classification, all within 29 seconds, with the final week ahead. Kwiatkowski, like on the stage 15 to Le Puy-en-Velay with his quick wheel change for Froome, has helped hold that lead.
