Au revior

So there it is. 21 stages, 3,360.3km, 81 hours 56 minutes 33 seconds and a second yellow jersey.

Chris Froome is on top of the cycling world.

Thanks for joning us for the last three weeks. It's been emotional. There will be plenty of reaction on the BBC Sport website, so make sure you stay tuned throughout the night.

Bonne nuit mes amis.

The chancelllor George Osborne snuck his way on to the stage there somehow. Not sure where he came from.

'The mailot jaune is special'

An emotional Chris Froome takes the microphone, his voice shaking slightly, he reads from a slip of paper.

I want to start by thanking my team-mates, without you I would not be standing here. I give you my utmost respect and gratitude. This is your yellow jersey as much as it is mine. Thank you to the support team at Team Sky - your support has got me through the tough times. Thank you to my wife Michelle - your love and support are my motivation. The maillot jaune is special, very special. I will always respect it and never dishonour it and I will always be proud to have won it.

Chris Froome, 2015 Tour de France winner

Chris Froome, Nairo Quintana and Alejandro Valverde stand on the podium as the British national anthem plays out. Now he'll speak... 

Yellow jersey

Just as soon as Chris Froome is off the stage, he's back up the steps again and is having the yellow jersey put on his shoulders. The arms go in the air and that smile could stretch across the English Channel. A few British flags flutter in the gathered crowd.

Polka dot jersey

Chris Froome is on the podium, but not to pick up yellow. He's also won the king of the mountains classification. So he wears the spots - but he won't have them on for long, as he's about to get something slightly better.

Team award

The Movistar riders are on the podium, accepting the award for the highest placed team. I don't spy him there, but Britain's Alex Dowsett, who dropped out midway through the Tour, is part of their number.

'I had fun this year'

I'm very happy because this year was very hard. My role in the team was different. I'm happy I've not crashed. I'm very satisfied. I had a lot of fun this year.

Green jersey winner Peter Sagan on EuroSport

An extra proud moment for @IStannard! Great job Yogi, she'll be very proud of you in years to come! #TDF2015

Bardet takes most combative jersey

Frenchman Roman Bardet takes the jersey for being the most combative rider. There's quite a few grumbles that Peter Sagan did not collect that award.

White jersey

Here's a man who deserves a ton of credit.

Nairo Quintana, for the second time a runner-up to Chris Froome, is now a two-time youth jersey winner. What odds on the little Colombian being a future Tour champion? One minute 12 seconds is so close.

Green jersey

Andre Greipel is up on the podium to receive the plaudits for that finish. He's closely followed by Peter Sagan, who takes the green jersey for a fourth consecutive Tour. No stage wins for the Slovakian though.

No shortage of ambition there from Adam Yates after his Tour debut. But Adam, and his brother Simon, have been superb, and could regularly be spotted in breaks up the hills. Adam finished 50th overall.

It wasn't as easy as I thought it would be - I had two flat tyres. But I got through. It's the first Tour finished with and hopefully I'll be back in the coming years and maybe do what Froome has done and win the yellow jersey.

The greatness of the Gorilla

That's four stage wins for Andre Greipel on this Tour alone. 

It's indescribable. I don't really want to share this feeling -it's a bit selfish. It was stressful with the rain this morning - we saw how dangerous it was in the women's race. It was amazing to be able to celebrate in the last 500m.

Team Sky's Nicolas Roche on ITV4

Geraint Thomas has been the star of the race. No-one expected him to be sitting fourth going into the Alps. He has emerged a grand tour contender.

Greg Coull:  Cav suffered there without his lead out train. Tough tour for him, sure he'll be back winning more stages next year

Ben Witz: Team Sky dominated another Tour, great to see Froome win again

Tracey Gorham:  So the alien abduction didn't happen, although they may be behind the bag. TDF#2 for Chris Froome.

'I'd like to thank my parents'

An emotional Andre Greipel has spoken to Eurosport

It's amazing. It's what I've always dreamed of. My team got me in the right position. I'd like to thank my parents and trainers.

It was great to see Chris Froome cross the line there. Five years ago, if someone said Britain would have had one winner, we would have laughed. After Bradley Wiggins' win, I can't believe how much the sport has changed.

Stage 21 result

It ended up being a shootout between Greipel, Bryan Coquard and Alexander Kristoff. This is how they finished:

1. Andre Greipel

2. Bryan Coquard

3. Alexander Kristoff

4. Edvald Boasson Hagen

5. Arnaud Demare

Mark Cavendish was down in sixth in that sprint. We'll get the official standings shortly.

It is about the team, that was quite special. It is not about individuals, Chris Froome could not have done that without the rest of them.

Yellow jersey

Chris Froome wins the Tour de France

Slowly, very slowly, behind them, come another bunch. Right at the back Team Sky link arms, a yellow jersey in the middle. Chris Froome smiles with delight and out of nowhere comes the sunshine. Chris Froome is officially a two-time Tour de France winner.

Team Sky have had so much thrown at them literally and figuratively but they come out smiling.

Greipel wins the stage

And it's Andre Greipel who wins the stage.

Andre Greipel makes a move...

Kristoff looking good...

Sagan, Degenkolb. Shoulder against shoulder...

They are all fighting and battling for position. They are clattering over the cobbles but there is a lot of damp. The green jersey is alongside Mark Cavendish. Four of the biggest sprinters are all together.

1.4km to go

Buckle in. This is the biggest and best sprint of the year. It's about to happen...

1.8km to go

Chris Froome is at the back and has to dart around a plonker in the middle of the road.

2.5km to go

Heads are flicking over shoulders, space is at a premium on the cobbles. The green jersey of Peter Sagan is there. So are Mark Cavendish and Andre Greipel.

3.6km to go

Lotto-Soudal have the most prominent position on the peloton, creating a sea of red. The battle begins.

5.5km to go

Kenneth Velbisen is a lone man up front. Rohan Denis is trying to join him. Sprinters are gathering towards the front of the peloton.

The bell rings

That means we are on the final lap and the front three are getting pulled back.

Three jets fly over the top spurting out the French tricolor. Lovely stuff.

7.4km to go

Froome is back in the pack with a bit of help from his team-mates.

Meanwhile, we are approaching the final lap...

A bag tries to sabotage Froome

Panic! Panic!

There is a paper bag caught in Chris Froome's back wheel. Alberto Lasada tries to be a kind soul and kick it out. Instead, Froome has to pull over and take a new bike. So the yellow jersey is having to scamper back on to the peloton.

13.2km to go

Another spin down the Champs-Elysees and the front three are 17 seconds ahead. The peloton is long and narrow and Chris Froome is right at the back of it.

Former GB cyclist

After 81 hours 56 mins and 33 seconds of racing, it has come down to one minute and 12 seconds. After all the talk about Team Sky it comes down to that.
