  1. A la prochaine

    Michael Matthews

    Right, let's call it a day. Great win for Michael Matthews, his first at the Tour de France.

    Orica-BikeExchange are having a fine Tour and the Australian team seemed to benefit from countryman Eddie Jones, who paid them a little visit after stage nine. But it is Chris Froome who remains in the overall lead. 

    Thanks for your company and all your photos. See you next time. 

  2. No change in general classification

    As you were in the overall standings then. Another stage down for Chris Froome, who remains in yellow. 

    1. Chris Froome (Britain / Team Sky) 49:08:20" 

    2. Adam Yates (Britain / Orica) +16" 

    3. Daniel Martin (Ireland / Etixx - Quick-Step) +19" 

    4. Nairo Quintana (Colombia / Movistar) +23"

  3. Timing it to perfection

  4. 'I have no words'

    Stage 10 winner Michael Matthews on ITV4: "It's unbelievable, the emotion is just sinking in, to have won a stage after two really bad years in the Tour de France. I was close to giving up on this race, thinking it was maybe not for me, but today was incredible. 

    "It was never the plan to go in the breakaway, we were hoping for bunch sprint after the last climb but we had strong guys, and whoever is up we give them 110%. Daryl Impey and Luke Durbridge gave me everything.  

    "I have no words." 

  5. Sagan in green

    Peter Sagan might have lost out on the stage win, but he can take solace in the fact he will be wearing the green jersey tonight, taking over from Mark Cavendish.

  11. Thomas the sage

    As Steve Cummings crosses the finish line, it's only fair to point out that Geraint Thomas predicted a win today for Michael Matthews in his stage-by-stage guide

    The Welshman also picked Steve Cummings to win stage seven, and has gone for Mark Cavendish tomorrow.

  14. Michael Matthews wins stage 10

    So Australian Michael Matthews win stage 10 for Orica BikeExchange.
