How Twitter is preparing for Tour de France’s final day

| 24.07.2016

Chris Froome is practically guaranteed to make history in Paris on the Tour de France’s final day.

He’ll become the first Briton to win the sport’s most gruelling road race three times.

Being crowned Yellow Jersey winner for the third time in four years is in the bag for the Kenyan-born Froome after crossing the line with his four-minute, five-second lead over Romain Bardet in tact.

That was in spite of a penultimate-stage crash too.

Ahead of the final day of the Tour, Twitter prepared to crown a familiar face as their 2016 Tour de France champion:

An iconic finishing line looked superb in its pre-race serenity

But there’s only one thing the man himself is looking forward to

He just needs one final team effort

It's not just cricket that interests him though, with football, golf, tennis and any American sport not played on ice all high on his list of favourites.
