Tour de France 2015: the highlights and the controversies

The Tour de France 2015 has reached the final stage, and the last leg in Morena Mothupi and Thomas Holder's journey was the closing ceremony in Paris, France.

Before boarding their flight back to South Africa we asked Holder and Mothupi to share their Tour de France highlights with us, Morena on the radio and Thomas with a few photos.

An exhausted Morena spoke to Sheldon Morias on SportsTalk where he gave a vivid picture of what was happening at the closing ceremony and a sweet summary of who won what and how.

Listen by clicking on the audio below:

Thomas' photo highlights take us through the French Alps:
