The Letterkenny rider took second place on the run in to Sarnen, with Cameron Meyer of Orica-GreenEdge edging Deignan out in a three-way sprint for the line which also included Lawrence Warbasse.

The trio were part of a group who at one stage had a five minute advantage on the peleton.

Deignan’s efforts saw him climb to seventh on the overall standings.

Tony Martin retained his grip on the yellow jersey.
