GC leader Tony Martin fractured his collarbone when he touched the back wheel of a Europcar rider and came off his bike in the final km of Stage 6.
The German Etixx-QuickStep rider has yet to decide if he will continue to race, but it's clear from the interview below that he is in considerable pain.
If Martin does abandon, it will be the second time the rider in yellow has quit the 2015 Tour through injury, after Fabian Cancellara hit the deck hard on Stage 3.

Sagan was disappointed after narrowly missing out on Stage 5, but the Slovak sprinter praised one of his pals in the peloton after again crossing the line in second place.
It was the third time in this year's Tour that Sagan has missed out on a stage victory by one position.
"I did my best, I have good legs," he said. "I'm happy for Zdenek because he's a good guy and he's my friend."
A smart early move by Etixx-QuickStep rider Zdenek Stybar saw him nullify the sprinting power of green machine Peter Sagan, as he explained to us at the finish.
