The Manx rider, 29, narrowly beat Italians Andrea Piechele and Kristian Sbaragli to the line.

"I felt super good all the way until the line and I'm super happy with this win," said Cavendish.

Croatian Kristijan Durasek retains the overall lead ahead of Sunday's eighth and final stage in Istanbul.
