Sitting on the sofa watching the Tour de France - that's what Julys are made for. And while Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen have hung up their microphones for 2016, we've still got a host of great commentators to guide us through the race.

Commentating on live sport isn't the easiest gig in the world, with many of them falling back on tried and tested phrases when having to fill the hours of action.

He's the smallest rider in the race
