A video has been released by GoPro showing the moment British cyclist Chris Froome won his second Tour de France after crossing the finishing line with his fellow Team Sky riders in Paris.

The footage, filmed by handheld GoPro cameras fitted to a number of bikes on the tour, shows the cyclists navigating their way through the streets of the French capital in wet and rainy conditions.

But 30-year-old Froome does not appear to mind as he can be seen smiling and joking with his teammates that at least they were not going up Alpe d'Huez again, the famous mountain stage that they cycled the day before.

Froome can also be seen telling the other Team Sky riders to link arms in celebration as they cross the line like they did when he won his first Tour de France in 2013.

The GoPro footage shows the exciting sprint finish along the Champs-Elysees in which Germany's Andre Greipel powered his way to victory, claiming his fourth win of the 2015 Tour.

Sky's win is its third in the past four years after Britain had waited 99 editions of the race to claim a first victory through Sir Bradley Wiggins in 2012.

The all-conquering team wore a special jersey with a yellow stripe to signify the leader and Froome was pictured toasting his second win with a glass of champagne on the road into Paris.

GoPro, as the official camera of the Tour de France, has outfitted various bikes with its latest Hero4 Session camera in order to show the world famous cycling race from the rider's point of view. Every day a minimum of eight bikes were equipped with a camera to allow fans from around the world to see the inside of the peloton.
