John,

If you want a latex export, you should use one of the many R packages[1] that format R objects for latex output.

For example:

#+begin_src R :session foo :results output latex
library(tibble)
library(xtable)
tmp <- tibble(x=1:5, y=x/pi)
xtable(tmp)
#+end_src

#+RESULTS:
#+begin_export latex

% latex table generated in R 4.1.0 by xtable 1.8-4 package
% Sat Aug 21 10:23:18 2021
\begin{table}[ht]
\centering
\begin{tabular}{rrr}
  \hline
 & x & y \\ 
  \hline
1 &   1 & 0.32 \\ 
  2 &   2 & 0.64 \\ 
  3 &   3 & 0.95 \\ 
  4 &   4 & 1.27 \\ 
  5 &   5 & 1.59 \\ 
   \hline
\end{tabular}
\end{table}
#+end_export

The xtable() and its print method have loads of options for formatting, setting environments and labels, and adding captions.

If you insist on doing this in org without the assistance of an R package, you will need to use a `:post' header argument.  If you have solid elisp skills, this is a viable option.

HTH,
Chuck
