Cape Town - South Africa President Cyril Ramaphosa has taken to social media to congratulate Daryl Impey on his Tour de France Stage 9 victory on Sunday.
READ: Was Sunday the greatest sporting day - EVER?
Impey became just the second South African to win a stage of the Tour
de France when he sprinted to victory in the stage
between Saint-Etienne and Brioude.
Robbie Hunter is the only other
South African to have tasted success in cycling's greatest race when he
won Stage 11 of the 2007 race.
Impey, riding for Australian outfit Mitchelton-Scott, was part of a 15-rider breakaway
which ended up contesting stage honours after the peloton deemed them no threat to overall yellow jersey contention.
President Ramaphosa took to Twitter on Monday to express his congratulations to Impey for winning the stage and making the country proud.
