The greats have come out to play in the first four days of the Tour de France: Fabian Cancellara, Mark Cavendish and twice, Peter Sagan. The 22-year-old won today in Boulogne-sur-Mer, a finish suited to him thanks to the steep ramp to the finish line.

"It was very impressive, but he's been impressive ever since he turned pro in 2010. He's going from strength to strength," Sky's sports director, Sean Yates said. "The way he finished today, it's not taking the Mick but he's taken it to another level."
