Kenyan-born cyclist Chris Froome was Sunday poised to succeed Bradley Wiggins as the Tour de France champion to complete a remarkable double for Britain. 

Britain's Chris Froome crosses the finish line at the end of the 20th stage of the 100th edition of the Tour de France cycling race, on July 20, 2013 between Annecy and Annecy-Semnoz, French Alps.

Froome, who finished runner-up in 2012 on his way to helping Sky teammate Wiggins make history as the first ever British winner of the world's most famous bike race, headed into Sunday's final stage with a 5min 03sec lead on Colombian sensation Nairo Quintana.
