While Tadej Pogačar (Team UAE Emirates) pulled off the biggest surprise of the day by snatching the yellow jersey from Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) and setting up overall victory at the Tour de France, Richie Porte also created a moment he will never forget, producing a superb time trial performance to climb onto the final podium in Paris. 

The 35-year-old Trek-Segafredo rider finished third in the time trial, gaining enough time to jump past Miguel Ángel López (Astana Pro Team), who dropped to sixth overall.
