Event of the day

The event of the day is stage four of the Tour de France which sees the riders battle it out over 207.5km from Mondorf-les-Bains to Vittel. A largely flat stage that should culminate in an exciting sprint finish. After Marcel Kittel’s stage two victory, this is a chance for him to add another stage win to his list and draw level with his rival André Greipel in the all-time number of stage wins with 11. Sprinters Arnaud Démare and Nacer Bouhanni are worth keeping an eye on as they try to get the first stage win of this race for a Frenchman. It is possible that weather could come into play on this stage, with crosswinds expected. That will mean the likes of last year's Tour de France winner Chris Froome and other favourites like Richie Porte and Nairo Quintana will need to remain on their toes so that they do not damage their chances in the quest for the yellow jersey. Welshman Geraint Thomas of Team Sky remains as the leader in the General Classification, with Froome in second and Michael Matthews of Australia in third.

Honourable mentions around the globe go to Day 2 of Wimbledon with Roger Federer up against Alexandr Dolgopolov and Novak Djokovic versus Martin Kližan in the men's singles and in the women’s singles Angelique Kerber takes on Irina Falconi. Three county cricket division one games continue into day two. There is a Women's international football friendly between Germany and Brazil at the BWT-Stadion am Hardwald in Sandhausen.
