Geraint Thomas crashed during the fourth stage of the Tour de Suisse

British rider Geraint Thomas has been forced to withdraw from the Tour de Suisse after sustaining a shoulder injury in a heavy fall on Tuesday.

Macleod said Thomas has been given "the all clear" to continue racing, however Ineos plans to monitor Thomas for the coming days.

Thomas is expected to lead Team Ineos at the Tour de France after team-mate Chris Froome was badly injured in crash at the Criterium du Dauphine last week, ruling him out of action for at least six months.

Team Ineos later revealed that Thomas had been given the all-clear and would be likely to defend his Tour de France title in two weeks' time.

"With the nature and severity of the impact, it was felt unsafe for him to continue in the race", Macleod said. "Geraint Thomas has suffered a laceration on the right side of his head, multiple abrasions and multiple severe bruises as a effect of his fall during today's 4th stage", he commented in a statement.

Froome, a four-time Tour de France victor, sustained a fractured neck, fractured right femur, broken hip and fractured ribs in his crash. "An Astana rider hit the lip and crashed and I had nowhere to go".

Thomas has been taken to hospital for assessment after coming off his bike in the final 30 kilometres from the end of stage four of the race.
