Froome, who is participating in the currently ongoing Tour de France, stands accused of using performance-enhancing drugs during competition. 

In order to prove that he is not involved in doping, Froome has said he will undergo physiological testing via an independent agency. The British cyclist convincingly won the 10th stage of the cycling championship, leading his closest competitor Tejay van Garderen by a significant 3 minutes. 

Following the win, however, several spectators and cyclists were sceptical of his prowess, leading to an inquisition against the cyclist, who has now agreed to subject his samples to examination in a bid to prove his innocence.
