Chris Froome wins fourth Tour de France title



Chris Froome has crossed the finish line in Paris to become Britain's first four-time winner of the Tour de France.
 
The Team Sky rider, who previously triumphed in 2013, 2015 and 2016, sipped Champagne during the 21st and final stage after he all but secured victory by retaining the yellow jersey in Saturday's time trial.


He sealed his fourth title by finishing 54 seconds ahead of Colombia's Rigoberto Uran, becoming the first person to win the race three times in a row since Spain's Miguel Indurain in the early 1990s.


Only five-time champions Eddy Merckx, Jacques Anquetil, Bernard Hinault and Miguel Indurain have won more Tours than Froome.
