MADRID, Aug. 24 (Xinhua) -- Peter Sagan (Tinkoff-Saxo Bank) won a bunch sprint ahead of Nacer Bouhanni (Cofidis) and John Degenkolb (Giant-Alpacin) to claim the third stage of the Vuelta de Espana (Tour of Spain) which finished in Malaga on Monday.
It was the first stage in a major Tour that Sagan, who won the green jersey for the highest number of points during this year's Tour de France had won in 780 days.

The US Senate on Tuesday confirmed former investment banker Jerome Powell as head of the Federal Reserve Blake Comeau Avalanche Jersey , putting President Donald Trump's pick in a role of enormous influence in the world's largest economy.

Powell, a current Fed governor, was confirmed by a vote of 85-12, paving the way for him to replace current Chair Janet Yellen when she steps down next month.
In choosing to replace Yellen Alexander Kerfoot Avalanche Jersey , Trump dismantled another piece of his predecessor Barack Obama's legacy, making Trump the first US president in nearly 40 years not to reappoint the incumbent Fed chair.
Analysts say Powell's appointment offered Trump the chance both to remove an Obama appointee, while also signaling to markets that he favoured continuity with the slow and deliberate rate increases that had won Yellen plaudits at the end of her term.
