Chris Froome, a cyclist from Team Sky of Britain, won 102nd Tour de France in a three-week slog of furious race around the Champs Elysees, Paris.
With this, Froome became the first Briton to win the Tour de France for the second time.
Froome made his mark in the mountain stage to La Pierre St Martin in the 10th stage before riding defensively to leave behind Nairo Quintana Rojas, a Colombian racing cyclist, by 72 seconds. The third-place was secured by Alejandro Valverde, cyclist from Spain.
The Team Sky now has three victories in its pocket. The first vistory was marked by former Team Sky leader Bradley Wiggins claiming the 2012 edition, followed the two victories of Froome in 2013 and 2015. British riders now have three Tour de France victories out of the last four Grand Boucles.
