France's Julian Alaphilippe won a sprint finish for the Milan-San Remo for his first victory in one of cycling's 'Monument' one-day classic races on Saturday.

The Deceuninck Qick-Step rider Alaphilippe finished ahead of a small group of riders, who had broken away near the end of the 291km race through north-western Italy, for his seventh win of the season.

The 26-year-old Alaphilippe sprinted from 600m before raising his arms in triumph after a narrow victory on the Via Roma in the Italian Riviera resort with Belgian Oliver Naesen (AG2R) second and Poland's Michal Kwiatkowski (Sky) in third.
