Britain’s Chris Froome wins third Tour de France title

Chris Froome became Britain’s first three-time winner of the Tour de France when he crossed the finish line of the 21-stage race in Paris on Sunday.

The Team Sky rider, who won the 2013 and 2015 races, is the first man to defend his title in more than 20 years.

Froome ended up beating Romain Bardet of France by four minutes and five seconds with Colombia’s Nairo Quintana in third and Britain’s Adam Yates fourth.

Froome’s three victories in four years follows Sir Bradley Wiggins becoming the first Briton to win the race in 2012.
