Tadej Pogacar won the Tour de France for the second straight year after a mostly ceremonial final stage to the Champs-Elysees in cycling’s biggest race.

The 22-year-old Slovenian rider with UAE Team Emirates had a final margin of 5 minutes, 20 seconds over Jonas Vingegaard, becoming the youngest double winner of the race.

Wout van Aert won the 67-mile stage in a mass sprint. Van Aert, a 26-year-old Belgian, is the first rider since 1979 to win a sprint stage, a mountain stage and an individual time trial in the same edition of the Tour.

PGA: Seamus Power won the Barbasol Championship in Nicholasville, Kentucky, for his first PGA Tour victory, beating J.T. Poston with a tap-in par on the sixth hole of a playoff.

Poston drove into the water that lines the right side of the par-4 18th at Keene Trace and made a bogey on the final extra hole. Power hit the fairway, played his second to 12 feet and two-putted for the victory.

Power birdied the par-3 16th and the 18th in regulation for a 5-under 67 to finish at 21-under 267 while Poston was squandering the lead behind him.

Poston made a double bogey on the par-5 15th after driving an inch out of bounds to the left, and followed with a three-putt bogey on 16. He parred the final two holes for 70.


FORMULA ONE: Lewis Hamilton roared back from a first-lap incident that sent championship leader Max Verstappen to the hospital and overcame a 10-second penalty to win the British Grand Prix in Silverstone, England.

The seven-time champion won at his home track to snap a run of five races without a victory and slash his gap to Verstappen from 33 points to eight.

Verstappen beat Hamilton at the start and the two title contenders furiously zigzagged for position. Their cars touched at least twice as Hamilton tried to slip past Verstappen. Hamilton’s front wheel touched Verstappen’s rear wheel the second time the drivers made contact, and Verstappen careened off course, through the gravel and into the tire barrier.

Charles Leclerc moved into the lead before the race was red-flagged for 45 minutes to allow for repairs to the tire barrier. After the race restarted, Hamilton was assessed his penalty and dropped back to fifth place, but he worked his way back up to second and then passed Leclerc with two laps remaining.
