It's the final day of this year's race, and – with the battle for the yellow jersey effectively over – Jonas Vingegaard (Jumbo-Visma) has achieved his second victory in a row. The sprinters will be out for glory in Paris, however, so you'll be looking for a Tour de France live stream so you can watch the action from the finish line as it happens. Coverage is available free-to-air on ITVX (UK) and SBS On-Demand (AUS), so make sure you know how to watch for free with a VPN from anywhere.

Saturday's stage 20 between Moûtiers and Bourg-en-Bresse was won by two-time Tour winner Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates). That meant that second-placed Pogačar, who had been neck-and-neck with Vingegaard until Tuesday's time trial, claimed back a few seconds in the General Classification, but not enough to make a significant dent on Vingegaard's seven-minute lead. Pogačar's UA teammate, Adam Yates, will occupy the third step on the podium.

Sunday's final stage takes the riders on a 115km route from Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines to Paris, culminating on the famous Champs-Élysées. Alpecin-Deceuninck  will surely be trying to get their green jersey wearer, Jasper Philipsen, in contention for a sprint finish, with the rider trying to secure his fifth stage stage win of this year's Tour. You can find out if he manages it by tuning into a Tour de France 2023 live stream. You'll find everything you need to know about how to watch the race below.
