MORZINE, France (Reuters) - Briton Chris Froome of Team Sky was poised to retain his Tour de France title after holding on to his overall lead in the last competitive stage, won by Spain's Ion Izagirre on Saturday.

Froome will wear the yellow jersey in the closing stage, a largely processional ride to the Champs Elysees in Paris on Sunday.
