It's the end of stage 7 of the Tour de France, and Wout van Aert has taken his second stage win of the race, and his Jumbo-Visma team's third after a day dominated by crosswinds, chaos and GC changes.

Adam Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) retained his yellow jersey, but that just scratches the surface on a day that was nail-biting and intense from the gun, and saw the peloton split to pieces on several occasions through the efforts of Peter Sagan's Bora-Hansgrohe team, and then later due to pressure from Ineos Grenadiers.
