Vuelta a Espana: Roglic wins first Grand Tour as Fabio Jakobsen takes final stage

Slovenian Primoz Roglic secured his first Grand Tour as Dutch sprinter Fabio Jakobsen won the final stage of the Vuelta a Espana in Madrid.

Jakobsen, 23, took his second stage win of the race, narrowly beating Sam Bennett in a chaotic final sprint.

The Irishman found himself boxed in and although he was closing fast was unable to add to his two previous stage wins.

Jumbo Visma’s Roglic, 29, finished two minutes 16 seconds ahead of Spain’s Alejandro Valverde overall.

Roglic became the first Slovenian to win the general classification in one of cycling’s three Grand Tours – the Vuelta, the Tour of France and the Giro d’Italia.
