L'Equipe becomes "The Team" for London start

IHT.com | French sports daily speaks English for London start of Tour de France - International Herald Tribune

The French sports daily L'Equipe commemmorated the Tour's visit to London with a Saturday edition that featured two front pages -- one in English.

With Marion Bartoli in the women's Wimbledon final and Richard Gasquet facing off with Roger Federer later today, the eyes of the French sports world are in London today, and both covers featured the headline “God Save le Tour!”

Only the cover was in English, although interestingly, the paper's web page is surveying its readers today on whether they speak English, with 73 percent so far answering, “Oui.”

VeloNews has posted a photo of the two covers (scroll down to “Latest photos”).
