UAE Team Emirates' Tadej Pogacar has claimed the victory of the Tour de France for the second year in a row.

The 22-year-old Slovenian showed his happiness all the way to the Champs-Élysées in Paris. He was seen celebrating with his teammates, the other jersey wearers and some other riders in the peloton during the 108.4-kilometre ride that had an iconic finish in one of the most iconic roads in the French capital and after crossing the finish line with the team, he confirmed this overall victory for the second year in a row.

"I'm without words," said Pogacar. "To be here again in Paris less than a year from my first victory is something really special, and I am so happy to win this race again. It's been an emotional few weeks.

"All the team and staff were amazing, and I am so thankful for all the hard work they have done to support me. I leave to the Olympics in Tokyo tomorrow with amazing memories. I can't wait to come back to the Tour de France again soon."
