Chris Froome is celebrating becoming the first British cyclist to win on Mont Ventoux in stage 15 of the Tour de France.

The stage is one of the most feared routes in cycling, and it has been nicknamed the 'Beast of Provence' because of it.

Froome crossed the finish line 30 seconds ahead of Colombian cyclist Nairo Quintana and 1min 40sec in front of his main rival Alberto Contador.
