David Cameron has wished the British cyclists taking part in the Tour de France the "very best of luck" on the eve of the race starting in Leeds.
Cameron said it was "tremendously exciting" that the Tour was coming to Yorkshire after he chatted to shoppers about the race in the centre of Wetherby.
"It's a brilliant advertisement for Britain and for Yorkshire. 3.5 billion people worldwide will be watching this," said the Prime Minister.
"I believe that, once again, Britain will show that we're brilliant at hosting sporting events and we've got great sportsmen and women to take part in them."
