Dani Moreno won stage four of the Vuelta a Espana after mounting a late charge, while Vincenzo Nibali regained the overall lead.

Moreno, who finished second on Sunday, made his attack with less than a kilometre to go on the final climb of the 189km stage from Lalin to Fisterra in Galicia and overhauled Juan Antonio Flecha to take the victory and earn the second Vuelta stage win of his career.

Nibali, the 2010 Vuelta winner and 2013 Giro d'Italia champion, now has a three-second lead over American Chris Horner with Ireland's Nicolas Roche third, a further five seconds back.
