Rafael Nadal defeated compatriot David Ferrer in straight sets to claim a record eighth French Open crown – the most any male player has ever won at a single Grand Slam event.

Nadal broke the record for most men’s victories at Roland Garros he had shared with Federer and Guillermo Vilas. He improved to 20-4 against Ferrer and has won 17 consecutive meetings on clay.

“These are things I was watching on TV when I was a kid,” Nadal said. “I thought, ‘I hope I can make it on such a court.’ My dream became reality.”

The Trophy was presenter Usain Bolt and we have got some photos from the epic final for you:
