Yates, who picked himself to win this stage in his guide for BBC Sport, is only the second Briton after sprinter Mark Cavendish to win multiple stages in the same Giro.

His team mate Esteban Chaves experiencing a "giorno senza" - "an empty day" - to see defending champion Tom Dumoulin of Team Sunweb move back into second place overall, 41 seconds down on the Lancashire rider, having got back onto the GC group after a late mechanical problem.

Chris Froome's struggles continued, with the four-time Tour de France champion now two minutes and 30 seconds behind the leader in 10th place. Mohoric, a freakish descender, had escaped with 38 kilometres to go, and while Denz joined him 19 kilometres later, he ultimately didn't have enough firepower to sprint past Mohoric in the final metres.

Ireland s Sam Bennett won the sprint for third 36sec later.

Dumoulin responded well to limit his losses, with Domenico Pozzovivo and Thibaut Pinot close behind, but Yates was able to sustain his tempo over the crest of the final climb to cross the line two seconds in front of the Dutchman, also picking up four bonus seconds for victory.

"I need more time on these sort of stages".

With Quick-Step Floors' star sprinter and overall points leader Elia Viviani, dropped along with Chaves, the race split into two as several teams in the peloton worked together to distance them.

The stage victor, Matej Mohoric, said: “Todays goal was to make the breakaway.

Yates has extended his overall lead, however his team-mate Estaban Chaves was dropped on the opening climbed and has slipped out of the top ten overall. "That's why I tried to attack him before", an elated Mohoric said after his gruelling ride.

"I'm delighted that I have taken this opportunity". I wasnt convinced I'd win the sprint against Nico Denz. He gave me the green light. It was a hard stage and subsequently a different sprint than if we had arrived fresh.

"I have to thank the team for everything they did to try to bridge the gap, but with all the other teams working against us, we had to call it and save our legs for the bigger picture". I m not very good in a sprint from a slow speed so I launched and I increased my speed as much as I could.

The four-time Tour de France victor lost time in the mountains of the southern Abruzzo region on Sunday, and is 11th overall after nine stages.

Tonight's Stage 11 is another lumpy one, covering 156km from Assisi to Osimo.
