Jessie Diggins continued her impressive cross-country skiing form with a comfortable 10km victory in Toblach, Italy to maintain her lead at the top of the Tour de Ski standings. The American crossed the finish line in 25m14.5s, to take the win from compatriot Rosie Brennan by almost 15 seconds, while Sweden's Ebba Andersson crossed in third.

The win is Diggins' second in three days following her 10km pursuit success in Switzerland on Sunday and means the 29-year-old extends her lead at the top of the table from Brennan.
