Vincenzo Nibali seals Tour de France race win
Vincenzo Nibali has won the 101st Tour de France, finishing the final stage on the Champs-Elysees in Paris.
The Italian cyclist is the sixth man to win all three Grand Tours - the Tour de France, Giro d'Italia and Vuelta a Espana.
His winning margin of seven minutes 37 seconds over Jean-Christophe Peraud in second is the biggest since Jan Ullrich won by more than nine minutes in 1997.
Germany's Marcel Kittel won Sunday's traditional final-stage sprint finish.
Nibali is the first Italian winner of the race since Marco Pantani in 1998.
He said: "After winning the Vuelta, the Giro and the Tour, I'll keep focusing on Grand Tours but I'd also like to crown it all with a world champion's rainbow jersey one year."
Nibali added: "The Vuelta was perhaps the most important competition because it gave me the strength to go into the Giro and the Tour in the following year.
