Chris Froome (Team Sky) sealed an historic fourth Tour de France victory on Sunday after safely crossing the final finish line on the Champs-Élysées in Paris as Dylan Groenewegen (LottoNL-Jumbo) won stage 21 in a sprint finish.

Froome becomes the only rider in the Tour's history to hold four titles, and leaves him one away from equalling the record of five held jointly by Eddy Merckx, Jaques Anquetil, Bernard Hinault and Miguel Indurain.
