  • Unusual Tour de France stage keeps Porte and Froome on their toes

Thomas began the day second in the general classification, 12 seconds behind his Team Sky team-mate Chris Froome, and his exit will come as a major blow for the three-times Tour victor.

Froome's other rivals followed the Italian, seemingly in order to remonstrate with him and tell him to wait.

"I was looking at him, he was in pain", Porte's sports director Fabio Baldato said. "I only found out at the finish".

"I really hope Richie is OK, I saw a bit of that crash".

"After I caught Nairo (Quintana) at the bottom, everyone was committed and it was just a case of getting to the finish". "It wasn't a swipe at Aru or anything like that".

Bardet is now third at 51 seconds with Uran, who took the winner's 10-second bonus, fourth at 55 seconds.

Quick-Step Floors' Martin got back on his bike but crashed again before limiting the damage on the line.

However, organisers said he was conscious and speaking but was being taken to hospital. "I was very, very lucky to get away as lightly as I did".

Martin lost more than a minute, as did Movistar's Nairo Quintana, three times a runner-up in the race, while former victor Alberto Contador of Trek Segafredo seems to be out of contention after losing over four minutes.

Martin did drop a place to sixth, one minute and 44 seconds down.

Cannondale-Drapac's Rigoberto Uran went on to win the stage.

Overall, Froome leads Aru by 18 seconds and Romain Bardet by 51 as two-times victor Alberto Contador of Spain cracked on the last climb and dropped out of contention.

Froome will be relieved to have safely completed a stage filled with hazards, but the loss of Thomas could be hugely significant with Team Sky left weakened.

"It's a massive disappointment", Thomas said.
