The president of Estonia, Kersti Kaljulaid, has become the first head of state to complete L’Étape du Tour in the event’s 26-year history, finishing the 135km course in a time of 8:54:04.

L’Étape du Tour is an annual mass participation event, organised by Tour de France organiser Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO), that sees amateur riders tackle the full route of a single stage of that year’s Tour.

This year riders had to face the daunting course of Saturday’s stage 20, the final mountain stage of this year’s Tour that starts in Albertville and finishes on the 2,365m summit of Val Thorens.
