VIDEO: Team Sky pay tribute to Chris Froome

Team Sky Team principal Sir David Brailsford says

Chris Froome is a “fitting winner” of the 100th Tour de France.

Froome’s team-mates Ian Stannard and Geraint Thomas also pay tribute to their team leader, who linked arms with his colleagues as he crossed the line in Paris.

It is Britain’s second successive victory in the race after Froome’s Team Sky colleague Sir Bradley Wiggins became the first Briton to win it a year ago.

Britain’s Chris Froome has won the 100th edition of the Tour de France, while Marcel Kittel claimed the final stage in Paris.

Froome finished safely in the peloton to confirm his position as overall race winner by more than five minutes.

It is the second time in two years a Briton has won the race after Team Sky team-mate Sir Bradley Wiggins became the first British winner in 2012.
