British cyclist Mark Cavendish, who is known as the Manx Missile, has pulled out of the remaining five stages of the Tour de France in order to concentrate on the Olympic games, his team Dimension Data has announced.
The Isle of Man sprinter, 31, won four stages, including the first at Utah Beach, to take the yellow jersey for the first time in his career. His overall tally is now 30, second only to Eddy Merckx.
Cavendish has opted to leave the Tour early, ahead of Sunday's conclusion in Paris, to focus on his dream of achieving gold at the Rio Olympics next month.
He said he took the decision "with great sadness" and added: "I'm at a point that would have a detrimental effect on my other big goal for the year, the Olympic Games."
