In Pics: Peter Sagan claims third stage victory in Stage 13 of Tour de France 20.7.2018 DNA: Popular News
With most of the top sprinters out of the Tour de France after punishing mountain treks, world champion Peter Sagan claimed a third stage victory at the Tour de France on Friday, winning the relatively flat 169.5-km ride from Bourg d’Oisans by a whisker. Sprinters Fernando Gaviria of Colombia and Dylan Groenewegen of the Netherlands, winners of two stages each, abandoned the race during Thursday’s stage ending atop the iconic Alpe d’Huez, exhausted after an opening block of racing in extreme heat. Slovak Sagan, however, went through the first three mountain stages with relative ease and had enough gas in the tank for the final effort in Valence, where he outsprinted Norway’s Alexander Kristoff and Frenchman Arnaud Demare into second and third place respectively. "My team did an amazing job. I took Kristoff's wheel for the sprint," said Sagan. Briton Geraint Thomas retained the overall leader’s yellow jersey after he and Team Sky mate Chris Froome were booed by the crowd before the start. The overall ...

After enthralling the audience with 'Mohabbat' and 'Halka Halka', the makers of ' Fanney Khan ' released a new song on July 20. Titled ' Mere Achche Din Kab Ayenge ', the Amit Trivedi song is a tribute to the struggles of a common man who is still waiting for his achche din. It instantly reminds you of the much-publicised 2014 poll promise of the Bharatiya Janata Party of bringing 'acche din' back in the country.  Penned by Irshad Kamil, the song features a glum and ageing Anil Kapoor and a youthful Rajkummar Rao . It talks about the woes of a comman man who is crushed under the pressure of his dreams. The lyrics are equal parts pensive and inspirational.
