Egan Bernal (centre), 22, became not only the first Colombian to win the Tour de France, but also the tournament's youngest champion since 1909 when he crossed the finish line on Sunday.

He crossed in the peloton, hand-in-hand with Ineos team-mate and last year's winner Geraint Thomas, who came second.
