Cavendish was seeking his 35th career stage victory on Le Tour, having equaled the great Eddy Merckx’s record last week, but was denied victory on the Champs-Elysees by Belgium’s Wout van Aert.

Slovenian Pogacar had already all-but secured victory ahead of the final stage into Paris, which is traditionally a formality as far as the general classification is concerned, and the 22-year-old becomes the youngest person ever to win the race twice.
