LAVAUR: Belgian cyclist Wout Van Aert took a second win of the Tour de France 2020 after an explosive Stage 7, a 168km ride from Millau to Lavaur, saw the peloton blow apart from the outset and Peter Sagan move back into the green jersey.Van Aert on Friday led home a select, lead group of race favourites to deliver Jumbo-Visma’s third win of the race as Slovenia’s Tadej Pogacar (UAE-Team Emirates) became the big casualty in the battle for yellow. Tour debutant Pogacar was dropped in the crosswinds during a frenetic conclusion to an already highly combative 168km stage, the 21-year-old crossing the line over a minute down to plummet out of the top 10 and lose the white jersey. Spain’s Mikel Landa (Bahrain-McLaren), Ecuador’s Richard Carapaz (Ineos Grenadiers), Australia’s Richie Porte and his Trek-Segafredo teammate Bauke Mollema of the Netherlands were all caught out after the expected winds wreaked havoc in the peloton, while Colombia’s Dani Martinez (EF Pro Cycling) shipped the best part of 15 minutes. Britain’s Adam Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) successfully negotiated the accelerations and echelons to retain the yellow jersey by three seconds on Slovenia’s Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma) as Frenchman Guillaume Martin (Cofidis) moved up to third place at nine seconds after what proved to be the most captivating stage of the race so far.

New Delhi, May 12 (PTI) Former India womens football team captain Sona Chaudhary, who has made serious allegations against the sports administrators in her recently launched book, said the female players were treated badly during her playing days. Chaudhary, who claims to have played for India between 1994 and 1998, has made the allegations in her book titled Game in Game. The book is written in Hindi. Speaking to PTI, she recalled how the women were treated back then. “I have not accused any specific person or organisation, I have brought out the deficiencies in the system. How the women footballers were treated badly, how they were given accommodation during tournaments and during tours, what kind of diets they were given, how they fought the odds,” said Chaudhary. She, however, denied that the women players had to pretend that they had relationship among themselves as lesbians to escape sexual harassment from officials. “It is a wrong statement I have not written that in my book. I had said that it was a game played within the game of football,” she said Talking more about the book, she said: “Today we have a support system in the game. But in our time we didnt. I have written about the things that are spoiling the system. We have suffered a lot as players but I dont want the same for upcoming players. Whatever hardships we faced during our time, I have penned it in my book”. Sources in All India Football Federation (AIFF) said that they are first finding out whether she played for India and if she didnt, the governing body will take strict action against her.
