Three-time world time trial champion Tony Martin won the 20th stage 54km individual race against the clock at the Tour de France on Saturday.

Vincenzo Nibali finished fourth on the stage to ensure he will win the Tour after Sunday's final stage finish on the Champs Elysees in Paris, retaining a lead of several minutes.

The race drama in Stage 20 was about who would join Nibali on the podium after a largely ceremonial ride on Sunday to the Champs-Elysees in Paris.

On a great day for the French, Jean-Christophe Peraud took seventh on the stage to finish second overall while compatriot Thibaut Pinot ended up third and also on the podium.

Only 15 seconds separated the three men as the stage began.

The result marks the first French podium finishes since Richard Virenque in 1997.
