A dominant showing saw Nibali (Astana) triumph by seven minutes 52 seconds to become the sixth rider to win all three Grand Tours, after Jacques Anquetil, Felice Gimondi, Bernard Hinault, Eddy Merckx and Alberto Contador.

The Italian, winner of the 2010 Vuelta a Espana and 2013 Giro d'Italia, wore the fabled maillot jaune for 18 of the Tour's 21 race days, having first taken the race lead on day two in Sheffield with his first of four stage victories.

Jean-Christophe Peraud (Ag2r La Mondiale) and Thibaut Pinot (FDJ) finished second and third to ensure there was two Frenchmen on the Tour podium for the first time since 1984, when Laurent Fignon won ahead of Hinault.
