It has been a hectic first week of racing at the Tour de France, a week that has seemed to be endless for the riders, with action from the gun in Bilbao to the final metres of the Puy de Dôme on Sunday evening.

For the 170 riders left in the race, Monday is a time to pause and relax, to reset, and to answer some more questions from pesky journalists. It also means no action on television for all you poor souls back home, so it is the perfect time to take a look at some of the most interesting social media posts of the last week.
