The Island's Mark Cavendish won a thrilling sprint finish to claim victory on the final stage of the Tour of Belgium, while his team-mate Remco Evenepoel claimed overall honours.

Cavendish overtook Belgian Tim Merlier in a final push for the line, with German Pascal Ackerman third.

It follows success in the Tour of Turkey earlier this year, when he claimed a hat-trick of stage wins.

Victory in Beringen was the 151st of 36-year-old Cavendish's career.
