HIGHLIGHTS - Vingegaard all but seals Tour victory
Jonas Vingegaard won stage 18 of the Tour de France in the yellow jersey to take a potentially decisive step towards sealing his first overall title.
Tadej Pogacar, who had shook hands with the Dane when he waited for him after a crash on the descent of the Col de Spandelles earlier in the day, was left behind with four kilometres left of the climb of the Hautacam as Vingegaard won by a minute from the Slovenian.
It was Vingegaard’s second stage win of the race, having taken yellow with victory on the Col du Granon on stage 11 when Pogacar suffered his first crisis.
The Jumbo-Visma rider now leads by more than three minutes, with Saturday’s 41km time trial expected to be the final chance to create any significant time gaps.
