Today is the final day of the 2017 Vuelta a Espana, historic in that it marks the closing of the curtain on Alberto Contador's racing career and the first successful Tour/Vuelta double in cycling history by Chris Froome.

Contador is admired for his panache while Froome is vilified for, as one observer put it, looking "like a praying mantis trying to have sex with a grape" on the bike.
