Kittel finished ahead of compatriot John Degenkolb, with Dutchman Dylan Groenewegen third on Tuesday's 178km stage from Perigueux to Bergerac.

It was the 29-year-old's 13th Tour stage win, taking him one ahead of Erik Zabel's German record of 12.

Froome claimed his 50th yellow jersey.

French pair Elie Gesbert and Yoann Offredo launched an early break, but their lead of more than five minutes was reined in with a little under 7km to go.

Kittel's power in the bunch sprint could not be matched, as the Quick-Step Floors rider beat Degenkolb by more than a bike length to extend his lead in the points classification.
