Team Sky rider Chris Froome won his 4th Tour de France title


Britain's Chris Froome won his fourth and most challenging Tour de France title on Sunday.

The 32-year-old Kenyan-born British rider finished just 54 seconds ahead of Colombian Rigoberto Uran overall.

Sunday's victory marks the third straight win for Team Sky rider. Froome's first big win came in 2013, the year after his former teammate Bradley Wiggins sparked off a mini-era of British dominance.

"I'm speechless, it is an amazing feeling, there is something magical about the Champs Elysees when you have spent three weeks thinking about being here in this moment," Froome told the BBC. "It is amazing to see my wife and son again - it feels like more than a month on the road."

Froome is now the only four-time winner of the Tour de France, the BBC reports. That is excluding Lance Armstrong's seven titles, which he was stripped of in 2012.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
