“Decided to go vegan since watching Netflix – The Game Changers. Ben & Jerry’s has got me covered.”
Froome has four Tour de France titles under his belt, but has suffered with his health this year following an injury at the Critérium du Dauphiné. The champ experienced multiple bone fractures after cycling into a wall at 54km/ph.

The Game Changers documentary, which has received criticism for some of its claims, has inspired a number of people in the sporting world to give veganism a try.

Who do you think will be the next athlete to leave meat and dairy behind?
