Caleb Ewan (Orica-Scott) took his second win of the Tour of Britain on stage 3, beating Edvald Boasson Hagen (Dimension Data) and Alexander Kristoff (Katusha-Alpecin) after a bunch sprint into Scunthorpe’s Central Park.

Race leader Elia Viviani (Team Sky) finished in seventh place and lost the leader’s green jersey which went back to Ewan.
