Ireland’s Daniel Martin won stage three of the Vuelta a Espana and cut Primoz Roglic’s overall lead to five seconds.

The 34-year-old Israel Start-Up Nation rider attacked in the last 200 metres of the climb to Laguna Negra’s summit, holding off defending champion Roglic.

Britain’s Hugh Carthy finished eighth for the second day in succession and moved to fifth overall, but is 38 seconds off the pace.

Chris Froome was more than seven minutes back and is 77th overall.

It was a first victory since July 2018 for Martin, who will be joined at Israel Start-Up Nation next season by Froome.
