Geraint Thomas (Ineos Grenadiers) secured overall victory at the Tour de Suisse after a strong time-trial performance as Remco Evenepoel (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl Team) narrowly won stage eight in Vaduz.

The 36-year-old finished just three seconds behind the Belgian on the day, and more than a minute quicker than Sergio Higuita (BORA-hansgrohe) to overtake him in the overall standings.
