Chris Froome won the Vuelta a Espana for the first time in his career, becoming the first Briton to triumph in Spain.

He became the third man in history to win the Vuelta and the Tour de France in the same year, safely making through the finish line unscathed from the final competitive stage on Saturday.

He finished 2:15 seconds ahead of the four time Grand Tour winner Vincenzo Nibali, with Russia's Ilnur Zakarin completing the first three.

He had previously been a runner up three times in his career but this time, he won and celebrated with a huge toast with a glass of cava in the saddle.

"I've been trying for years and I've been second three times, so to win the Vuelta now is incredible," said Froome.

"For me it certainly has been harder to win the Vuelta than the Tour.

"Up until now my focus has been 100 per cent on the Tour de France and trying to survive the Vuelta, whereas this year the plan was to start the season later.

"Maybe I wasn't quite at my top, top for the Tour de France but it means I've been able to hold my form for longer and that has shown in this year's Vuelta."

"I have to say it's probably the toughest Grand Tour I've ridden," added Froome.
