The sight of a Tour de France winner being congratulated by the race's yellow-clad hostesses is familiar to most sports fans but it will be given a 21st century twist with the addition of "podium boys" – or hosts, as the French term them – when a women's race returns to the Tour de France on the Champs Elysées on 27 July.

"Those who make it on to the podium can look forward to kisses from podium boys!" read a statement from Le Tour de France. In the long term, however, the most important element revealed at Tuesday's launch of La Course is the extent of television coverage the race will enjoy: the two-hour event is expected to be broadcast in 147 countries, with 12 channels across 104 of those countries showing it live.
