André Greipel (Lotto-Soudal) beat John Degenkolb (Trek-Segafredo) and Dylan Groenewegen (LottoNL-Jumbo) in a photo finish to win stage four of the Volta ao Algarve on Saturday.

Devoid of a lead-out train, Greipel showed a wicked turn of speed to come from far back and overturn Degenkolb's lead in the closing metres, with Groenewegen joining the pair in a finish separated by the smallest of margins.
