The video shows the Sky car driving through Dutch Corner on the iconic mountain, where it was greeted with boos and people thumping the vehicle and aiming some pretty clear hand gestures at the driver.
Some unidentified liquid also hit the car’s windows as the hundreds of fans crowded tightly around the vehicle as it inched up the mountain.
Elsewhere on the Tour, Froome was showered in urine, Richie Porte was punched by a fan and other riders in the squad suffered verbal insults thrown in their direction.
