'Froome fulfilled both our dreams'

Chris Froome's first coach and mentor has told Today sports presenter Jonathan Legard that in winning the Tour de France Chris Froome had "fulfilled both their dreams".

David Kinjah, the first black African rider to sign for a European cycling team, explained that he trained Froome as a cyclist when he was a boy while his family was living in Kenya.

"He was wearing the yellow everyday, I almost felt like I was wearing it myself," he said.

Chris Froome, Britain's second successive winner of the Tour de France in its 100th year, dedicated his victory to his late mother Jane who died in 2008.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Monday 22 July 2013.
