Tadej Pogacar moved into the leader's yellow jersey as France's Kevin Vauquelin won stage two of the Tour de France.

Arkea-B&B Hotels' Vauquelin took his first Grand Tour stage win after breaking away from the front group, and is the second Frenchman to take a stage win in as many days.

Pogacar, of UAE-Team Emirates, powered away on the final climb of the 199.2km stage to Bologna, Italy, but took his main rival and last year's winner Jonas Vingegaard with him.

Dane Vingegaard of Visma-Lease a Bike, crossed the line with Pogacar, but the Slovenian took the yellow jersey after having a higher placing in the first stage.

The pair share the same overall time, along with Belgium's Remco Evenepoel of Soudal-Quick Step and Ecuador's Richard Carapaz of EF Education-Easy Post.
