Rafael Nadal won a record-extending 12th French Open title on Sunday

Rafael Nadal captured a record-extending 12th French Open title by overcoming the fierce challenge from Dominic Thiem to win 6-3 5-7 6-1 6-1 on Sunday.

In a rematch of last year’s final, the Spaniard proved to be the king of the red dirt of Roland Garros as he became the first man or woman to win the same Grand Slam tournament 12 times – moving clear of the 11 titles won by Margaret Court at the Australian Open.

An 18th Grand Slam title overall moved Nadal to within two of Roger Federer’s all-time men’s record.
