Pagacar, who will celebrate his 22nd birthday on Monday, is the youngest man to win the race since Henri Cornet in 1904.

UAE Team Emirates’ rider Tadej Pogacar won the Tour de France after he retained the overall leader’s yellow jersey in the 21st stage won by Sam Bennett on Sunday.

Pagacar, who will celebrate his 22nd birthday on Monday, is the youngest man to win the race since Henri Cornet in 1904.

Pogacar, who pulled off a major upset when he claimed the yellow jersey from Primoz Roglic with a monumental performance in Saturday’s time trial, also won the white jersey for the best Under-25 rider and the polka dot jersey for the mountains classification.

Roglic ended up second, with Australian Richie Porte taking third place.

Pogacar also won three stages in one of the most brilliant individual performances in recent Tour history, leaving Roglic’s dominant Jumbo-Visma team stunned.

Bennett became the first Irishman since Sean Kelly in 1989 to win the green jersey for the points classification.

It was an anti-climatic finale on the Champs Elysees as only 5,000 fans were allowed on the famous avenue as a precaution against the coronavirus.

France reported 13,498 new confirmed Covid-19 cases over the previous 24 hours on Saturday, setting another record in daily additional infections since the start of the epidemic.
