Baden Cooke won the Tour de France points competition - but only after race judges turned down an appeal from runner-up Robbie McEwen.

The Australian pair bumped shoulders as they battled it out for second place on the final stage and McEwen claimed that Cooke moved into his path.
But the judges said there was no problem with the sprint and Cooke took the green jersey by a two-point margin.
"It's great to have won it," said Cooke. "It was a stressful stage with everything being decided in the final sprint but I knew it was just as stressful for McEwen and so stayed cool."
McEwen, winner of the points competition last year, started the stage with the green jersey, which he had taken off Cooke on Friday.
Cooke won the first of the stage's two intermediate sprints on the Champs-Elysees to level the score but McEwen retook the lead on the second.

"I gained confidence that I could win after I won the first sprint and the team did a great job sprint," said Cooke.
"The second sprint wasn't very good and McEwen beat me but I tried to forget about it and wait for the final sprint."
France's Jean-Patrick Nazon came through to win the stage but Cooke edged out McEwen by a fraction of a wheel.
