Three victories at the Tour de France have sealed his place within an elite club in tour cycling. He is also the first person to successfully defend his title in 20 years.

Talking of elite clubs, Twitter is calling for Froome to be knighted.

It's about time he joined his ex-team mate Bradley Wiggins on the honours list.

Don't worry though, there was plenty of love for the team who helped him to victory

We're sure Team Sky will be celebrating in style tonight. They deserve it!
