  1. Au revoir

    Well what a brilliant conclusion to another spectacular Tour de France. And what an outstanding winner in Egan Bernal. There aren't enough superlatives for the 22-year-old!

    Colombia's first champion at La Grande Boucle is also the youngest rider in 110 years to win the race.

    He crossed the line in the peloton, hand-in-hand with his Ineos team-mate and last year's winner Geraint Thomas, who finished second this time. But you can read more about that and Caleb Ewan's sprint victory on our report here.

    Thanks for joining me, it's been an absolute pleasure.

  2. 'Egan is the future'

    Geraint Thomas speaking to ITV 4 after finishing second to Egan Bernal: "To finish second behind a team-mate makes it OK.

    "Two years ago I had my arm in a sling with a broken collarbone watching Chris Froome win, wishing I was riding and I would've taken second then, but it just shows how time and expectations have moved on.

    "Egan is the future and when I'm 45 and old and fat and sat in the pub watching him win a 10th Tour de France I can say I told him all I know."

  3. Post update

    More from Sir Dave Brailsford on when he first heard about Egan Bernal: "He'd been mountain biking and just switched to road, we were looking around for our next big champion after Chris Froome, Geraint Thomas, contrary to popular belief we don't want to just buy the top riders, we like younger guys that we can develop.

    "We brought Egan to the Giro, we liked him and his family so we signed him and off we went.

    "When you have riders the calibre of Froome, Thomas and they turn round and realise it is the moment to support and switch, they do it, without being told.

    "They understand the sport, they have respect for each other our guys, they are a team, and G [Geraint Thomas] has demonstrated that once again."

  4. 'I just feel very proud privileged'

    Sir Dave Brailsford speaking to ITV 4: "I'm loving it. I've just had to swap jersey for a Colombia one.

    "I've been over there a couple of times in the last couple of years, it's loud, the music, it's an exciting place, that has got a lot of emotion to it.

    "To deliver their first Tour de France champion... Did we expect it this year who knows? I just feel very proud privileged. Someone is going to figure out I get paid for this one day."

  5. 'I’m the happiest guy in the world'

    Egan Bernal & Geraint Thomas

    Egan Bernal: "I should say thanks to all my team and thank you G [Geraint Thomas] for giving me the opportunity. Thanks to the supporters for believing in me.

    "Today I’m the happiest guy in the world. I have just won the Tour de France and I can’t believe it."

  6. Post update

    The fireworks are sparkling, the Eiffel Tower has been lit up yellow. Here comes the King of the Tour.

    A simply brilliant cyclist. And a superb linguist. Egan Bernal has just delivered his winning speech in four different languages. English, Italian, Spanish and a bit of French for the locals.

    Lotto-Soudal sprint king Caleb Ewan speaking to ITV 4: "It’s unbelievable. When we rolled on to the Champs-Elysees I almost had tears in my eyes it was such a surreal feeling. I can't believe I won the stage

    "The tour started slowly for me but it got better in the second half. I can’t believe I won on the Champs-Elysees.

    "It was quite messy and I was quite far back but I was patient and then just ran at the wheel of the three guys, I went down the right, I'd been told to avoid there and it is quite bumpy but luckily I had enough speed to come through at the end."
