(Paris, France) -- Italy's Vincenzo Nibali is celebrating as champion of the 2014 Tour de France. Nibali capped the three-week race by becoming the seventh Italian to win and the first since the late Marco Pantani, who did so in 1998.

Nibali defeated veteran Jean-Christophe Peraud by seven-minutes-and-37-seconds. France held second and third place on the podium with youngster Thibaut Pinot finishing just over eight minutes off the lead pace.
