Tour de France: stage 18 - live!

4.40pm: Thomas Voeckler stays in yellow! He finishes with Basso, Evans, Frank Schleck and Pierre Rolland at 2min 20sec.

4.39pm: "Just seen a tweet from someone who says they're on the 15k mark on the Col de Galibier and Cav just went through about 18 minutes behind Andy Schleck," writes Richard Campbell. "Perhaps this will help put some of those demanding to know how far behind he is at ease at little?"

4.37pm: Andy Schleck takes the stage win - start the clock. Voeckler needs to finish within 2min 38sec to keep the yellow jersey.

4.35pm: Andy Schleck is well inside the final kilometre, behind him Thomas Voeckler is gritting his teeth and pedalling hard. Another sensational ride by the Frenchman might just be enough keep him in the yellow jersey for another night."

4.34pm: "What is Gary Naylor on about?" asks Niall Sheerin. "Andy's about to win the stage and the yellow jersey with an historic ride. Tommy is still fighting and as comfortable as ever in the group maillot jaune. I was always told, if you ain't got anything worthwhile to say, better to say nowt at all."
