    Yesterday champion British cyclist Chris Froome rode the customary lap of honour in the Champs-Élysées, Paris, before being crowned winner of the 2016 Tour de France. The win is his third, making him Britain’s first ever three-time winner and one of a small, elite group in the world.

    Froome shared the honours with Romain Bardet of France,  the Colombian rider Nairo Quintana and Britain's Adam Yates, who came fourth. André Greipel of Germany won the final stage in the traditional sprint on the Champs-Élysées.

    Froome had held the yellow jersey, awarded to the winner of each stage, for several days of the race. On Saturday he safely negotiated pouring rain in the mountains, with a treacherous descent from the Col de Joux Plane to Morzine, to gain a lead of four minutes and five seconds.
