Time to wrap up here – thanks for joining me for an absolutely ridiculous day of racing over the cobbles. I’ll leave you with our race report, and the early news that Richie Porte is out of the Tour. Thanks for joining me, and all your emails. Bye!

John Degenkolb speaks: “[I’m feeling] pure happiness. I’ve been chasing this victory for so long. It’s really hard to describe.”

He’s fighting back tears. “It was a really hard day. We had a plan to stay out of trouble, and that worked out really well. I have been through a lot of things in the past, and had such a hard time.

“I’d like to dedicate this victory to one of my best friends, who passed away last winter. This was for him. Everyone said I was finished after what happened [the training accident in 2016]. I’m so thrilled to get a big race

Here’s our snap report, with Jeremy Whittle’s full write-up to come:

Full GC coming up, but Van Avermaet has stretched his lead over Geraint Thomas to 43 seconds. Philippe Gilbert, who was here, there and everywhere, is in third place overall.

Stage nine result

John Degenkolb (Trek-Segafredo) 3h 34min 26sec

Yves Lampaert (Quick-Step) st

Timothy Dupont (Wanty) st

It’s somehow fitting that Degenkolb has won today. He hasn’t been quite the same since an awful training accident in 2016, when he and his Sunweb colleagues were hit by a car in Spain. He’s returned to the big time here after a brutal stage that has pushed the riders to the absolute limit.

Croatia vs England live

19 min: Perisic cuts in from the left and has a whack, sending a low daisycutter inches wide of the left post. Pickford had it covered, were it on target. It should have been a corner, mind, flicking lightly off Walker’s ankle, but Croatia aren’t getting the decision.

7.18pm BST 19:18

18 min: Rakitic attempts to release Vrsaljko down the right with a raking crossfield pass. It flies into the stand, but so little have Croatia achieved in attack so far, it’s theatrically applauded by his team-mate anyway. Croatia trying to keep their heads up.

7.17pm BST 19:17

16 min: Croatia are struggling to string two passes together right now. Vrsaljko, slightly frustrated, clatters into Kane. Not enough for a booking, but enough for the referee to keep it in mind going forward. “Kids asleep,” reports Calpol and Talisker’s William Davies. “Now what have I missed?”

7.14pm BST 19:14

14 min: England win another corner, Alli slipping a pass wide right for Trippier, who knocks the ball off Strinic. He takes the set piece himself. Maguire wins this one again, but from his position on the penalty spot, sends a downward header wide right. Croatia don’t look comfortable at all. They’re seriously rocking.

7.13pm BST 19:13

12 min: Alli, chasing a loose ball, forces Brozovic into the concession of a corner from 30 yards out. Maguire gets his head on the delivery from the left, but he’s pushing and the referee relieves the pressure on Croatia.

7.12pm BST 19:12

11 min: Maguire and Stones take turns to play loose passes out of defence. In both instances, they’re extremely fortunate not to give up possession and put themselves in bother. England will need to guard against over-confidence.

7.10pm BST 19:10

9 min: The corner’s no good. It should be easily cleared by Alli, who does clear, but only after nearly passing straight to a black shirt. England skitter upfield at speed again, and Kane very nearly springs Steling clear … but Vrsaljko does enough to get in the road. England are oozing confidence. They’ve sprung out of the blocks magnificently!

7.08pm BST 19:08

8 min: Perisic sends the ball into the England box from the left. Young miscontrols at the far post and concedes a corner. Croatia’s first chance to test England.

7.08pm BST 19:08

7 min: That’s a sensational strike. Croatia try to strike back immediately, Rebic hooking into the England box from the right. Pickford claims easily, and sets England away on another attack. Sterling skedaddles down the right after a long pass, and very nearly latches onto it, but Subasic is quickly off his line to smother. What a start by England! Whisper it: this is the way champions carry on.

Emily Whitmire def. Jamie Moyle via unanimous decision (29-28×3)
Dan Hooker def. Gilbert Burns via first-round KO

Whitmire Takes Unanimous Decision With Strong 3rd round and Language

After two sleepy rounds, Whitmire hit a well-timed takedown against Moyle. Whitmire maintained top position throughout the third round and took a well-deserved unanimous decision. After the bout, Whitmire had some tough language for Moyle’s coach and her former coach Vinny Malgahaes as he left the cage.

In the current climate of the UFC, Whitmire’s first Octagon victory and rawness on the microphone will likely earn her some more attention and shine.

I saw Vinny this AM and asked him about that. He said it was a bit weird but Jamie has been a student of his since she was a white belt so his allegiances

UFC 226, headlined by Miocic vs CormierSource: FOX SPORTSFOR only the third time in the UFC’s 25-year history, a reigning champion will fight a reigning champion from another weight class.

Cormier (20-1), the affable light heavyweight champ, is moving up to challenge Miocic (18-2), the most accomplished heavyweight champion in UFC history, in the main event of the UFC’s biggest pay-per-view show of the summer.

“This is the ultimate thing you can do in this sport,” Cormier said. “This is the chance for both of us to prove what we can do in unique circumstances.

“Everybody wants to see this kind of fight but nobody ever actually takes the risk and does it. So let’s do it.”

MIOCIC VS CORMIER

UFC 226 live stream: Time, TV schedule, and how to watch Miocic vs. Cormier online
On Saturday, the UFC will have two champions vying for one belt in the main event of UFC 226: Miocic vs. Cormier. Stipe Miocic, the UFC heavyweight champion, is putting his belt on the line against Daniel Cormier, the UFC light heavyweight champion.

MIOCIC VS CORMIER

The prelims begin at 7 p.m. ET on UFC Fight Pass, and continue at 8 p.m. on Fox Sports 1. The pay-per-view main card is set to begin at 10 p.m. Online streaming of the prelims can be had via fuboTV, UFC Fight Pass, and Fox Sports GO. Live streaming of the pay-per-view can be purchased from the UFC directly at UFC.TV and their YouTube channel.

Miocic and Cormier both fought on the UFC 220 card, defending their titles against Francis Ngannou and Volkan Oezdemir, respectively. Miocic went all five rounds against Ngannou, a tough striker, and broke the record for most consecutive defenses of the heavyweight strap with just three.

That’s why any title bout involving a heavyweight is still a huge deal: the belt changes hands with such frequency that if Miocic manages to beat Cormier, he could become one of the bigger draws in the sport. Cormier finished Oezdemir in the second round via TKO (punches).

Ngannou will also be on the card, up against Derrick Lewis in a heavyweight bout on the main card as the co-main event. Michael Chiesa will face Anthony Pettis in a lightweight bout before that, and the main PPV card will open with a bout between Khalil Rountree Jr. and Gökhan Saki.

The original co-main was a featherweight title bout between Max Holloway and Brian Ortega, but the former had to pull out due to injury.

The preliminary card is headlined by a middleweight contest between Uriah Hall and Paulo Costa.
