Ewan (Lotto Soudal) picked his way through the maelstrom of riders in the sprint, emerging at the last possible moment to claim another Tour de France stage victory - he now has a total of five during his career. 

The Australian came off Sam Bennett's (Deceuninck-QuickStep) wheel to poke past the sprint classification leader at the finish, with Peter Sagan (BORA-hansgrohe) also edging out Bennett on the line for second in Stage 11.

In doing so, Ewan avenged the result from Stage 10, where he felt that he left his sprint a little late.

"Caleb Ewan was biding his time and remaining calm.
