BERN, Switzerland (AP) World champion Peter Sagan won the 16th stage of the Tour de France in a photo finish as the race crossed into Switzerland on Monday.

Sagan, a Slovakian with the Tinkoff team, edged Alexander Kristoff of Norway at the line.

Kristoff thought he won and pumped his fist in celebration, only to learn seconds later he hadn’t.

Chris Froome held on to the yellow jersey entering the second and final rest day.

The rolling 209-kilometer (130-mile) stage from Moirans-en-Montagne to the Swiss capital of Bern resembled the route of a single-day classic, with a section on cobblestones before a slight uphill finish.
