Tao Geoghegan Hart has become only the second British man to win the Giro d’Italia.

The 25-year-old, who won stage 20 on Saturday, was tied with Australian Jai Hindley before the final-day time trial, the first such instance in the race’s history.

But Ineos Grenadiers’ Geoghegan Hart finished 39 seconds ahead of Hindley in the 15.7km time trial in Milan.

Chris Froome is the only other British man to win the Giro, in 2018.

Geoghegan Hart became the fifth British man – alongside Froome, Bradley Wiggins, Geraint Thomas and Simon Yates – to win a Grand Tour.

In only his fourth Grand Tour, Geoghegan Hart began the race as one of Geraint Thomas’ domestiques and was in 126th place after the opening stage.

Geoghegan Hart described his victory as “bizarre”, adding: “Not in my wildest dreams did I imagine this would be possible when we started almost a month ago in Sicily.

“All of my career I’ve dreamed of trying to be top 10 – top five maybe – in a race of this stature, so this is something completely and utterly different to that and it’s going to take a long time to sink in.”
