Team Sky lead the peloton over the pack and so Chris Froome retains his 23-second lead over Romain Bardet and 29-second lead over Rigoberto Uran - with this Tour set to be decided on the streets of Marseille with that all-important 22.5km time trial.

Meanwhile, the peloton is still riding the final moments of this stage - and there have been no attacks, with Team Sky leading their yellow jersey towards the line...

That round-about with 2.9km to go proved pivotal...

So, Edvald Boasson Hagen strikes again on the Tour - six years after he won a brace of stages for Sky in 2011. Following the withdrawal of Mark Cavendish in stage 4, this win has saved the Tour for his Dimension Data team - and came after the Norwegian 30-year-old finished second twice (in cruel photo finishes) and third twice.

Nikias Arndt (Team Sunweb) takes second place about six seconds back before Jens Keukeleire wins the sprint for third at 13 seconds. An impressive - albeit anti-climatic - end to this stage.

Flamme rouge for the former Norwegian national champion... and this is almost a procession!
1.5km
They've given up! Arndt is the only rider who is trying to catch Boasson Hagen...

Boasson has dropped Arndt and is soloing clear - he's going to win this one at a canter!

Arndt and Boasson Hagen are the only two riders who take the favourable route around the roundabout - and they have opened up a small gap.
3km
The games of cat and mouse are starting now as they enter the outskirts of Salon-de-Provence.
4km
Now Thomas De Gendt attacks - and he's closed down by Benatti and Keukeleire...
5km
Albasini puts in a huge attack and takes Chavanel and Boasson Hagen with him. The Norwegian takes control and then slows the tempo. He's be a popular winner today.
5.5km
Chavanel the next to attack. The French veteran is riding his 17th consecutive Grand Tour...
6km
It's odd to see Boasson Hagen working so hard - perhaps he just doesn't want anyone to ride clear. On paper, he's the fastest finisher - but we're at the end of the third week of a gruelling Grand Tour. Any of these nine riders could win.
8km
Albasini and Boasson Hagen zip clear, with Bakelants closing the gap for the others. It looks like Orica are playing the Albasini card now, with Keukeleire for the sprint...
8.5km
Elie Gesbert puts in a dig to string out the leading group - that would be some way to end his first Tour...
