Chris Froome celebrates second Tour de France win
British cyclist Chris Froome has won the Tour de France for the second time in three years.
The Kenyan-born 30-year-old won the 102nd Tour by one minute 12 seconds from Nairo Quintana of Colombia.
It meant a third British victory in four years after Sir Bradley Wiggins' triumph in 2012.
Froome's defence of the 2013 title ended with a broken hand and fractured wrist 12 months ago, but the Team Sky leader responded by securing the yellow jersey despite Quintana's late challenge on Saturday.
The 109.5-kilometre concluding stage from Sevres to Paris is traditionally a procession and saw Froome sip champagne and pose for photographs with his team-mates.
The only trouble he found on the last day was when a paper bag got caught on his bike, requiring a change, on the penultimate lap of the Champs-Elysees.
Froome, who became the second British winner of the King of the Mountains title in the competition's 40-year history, still had to complete the last stage to win, but he could avoid the sprinters' teams battling for position.
He said with a smile after finishing, of the paper bag incident: "I can thank McDonald's for that one, I think it was a McDonald's bag."
