Chris Froome's victory in the 2017 Tour de France, sealed with third place in stage 20's time trial on the streets of Marseille, is the best of the Brit's four titles, according to Team Sky boss Dave Brailsford.

Froome won in 2013 after placing second while working for Bradley Wiggins in 2012. He backed it up with wins in 2015 and 2016, and, assuming all goes to plan in the Paris stage on Sunday, 2017 too.
