Chris Froome was caught in the crossfire during some bizarre exchanges at a medical tribunal on Tuesday.
The fit-to-practise hearing into former Team Sky and British Cycling medic Richard Freeman was told of how team head Sir Dave Brailsford and lead medic Dr Steve Peters conducted a series of interviews with their staff in 2012 amid concerns about links to doping.
Interviewees were asked to sign a declaration that they had not been involved in cheating, with those who confessed asked to leave the team.
