Chris Froome has been dominated the 2015 edition of the Tour de France so far. However, it seems that not all the crowd acknowledges his performance.

After doping charges appeared in the media in reaction to his outstanding climbing performance, a fan threw a cup full of urine at him. This might have seemed to be funny for the probably (or hopefully) drunk fan, but this was a disgusting act that shouldn’t be happen at such a prestigious event. International cycling’s governing body and Tour organizers, Amaury Sport Organisation – not so quickly, but finally – acted, releasing a statement that asks fans to respect yellow jersey.
