Gosport sailor Alex Thomson remains in second place going into the final stages of The Vendée Globe Race.

With 91 per cent of this year’s race complete, Thomson is sitting in second place – 227 nautical miles behind French rival Armel Le Cléac’h,

Should he win, he would become the first Briton to claim victory in this gruelling challenge, which to date has been won only by French competitors.
