In addition, he was also awarded the green jersey for leading the points classification, taking it from British racer Mark Cavendish, the Sme daily reported.

“It was a long day,” Sagan told the Pluska.sk website. “I am glad that I kept the yellow jersey. I am also wearing a green jersey so Tour develops well for me.”

He also appreciated the performance of Kittel and Coquard.
