Support Remain (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

stay

This clue is a double definition.

'support' is the first definition.
(stay is a kind of support)

'remain' is the second definition.
(I know that remain can be written as stay)

(Other definitions for stay that I've seen before include "Remain; suspend" , "Supporting rope; remain" , "Supporting rope or wire" , "Corset strut" , "Rope or wire used to support a mast" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian and The Times.
