Team Sky rider Froome, on the brink of winning the competition for a third year in a row, is happy to have handled the pressure that comes with leading the pack.

"It's an amazing feeling to finish that off now," he told ITV Sport. "There was a lot of pressure coming into today's stage with it being so close in the general classification but there was an amazing atmosphere here.
