“Opportunities to become the first person in the world to achieve these kind of feats are extremely rare nowadays, especially as a pro cyclist,” the Kenyan-born rider added.

“To become the first person ever to cycle through the Eurotunnel was right up there with some of the most iconic rides I’ve ever done – this must have been one of very few ‘world first’ rides left.”

The stunt was organised by Team Sky and Jaguar, and negotiations began over six months ago.

The service tunnel used by Froome for the ride is reportedly one of the highest security sites in the UK and France.

The defending champion is currently in fifth place overall.
