Stan Wawrinka defied the odds to win his first French Open title after the Swiss recorded a shock four-set victory over world number one Novak Djokovic.

Djokovic was the overwhelming favourite to record his 29th consecutive win and complete a career Grand Slam at Roland Garros, but Wawrinka produced a scintillating display to defeat the Serb 4-6 6-4 6-3 6-4.

The victory is only Wawrinka's second in 18 meetings against Djokovic and means the world number nine now has a second grand slam title to add to his success at the Australian Open in 2014.

Wawrinka has never been this far in Paris, but Djokovic is aiming to make his own piece of history by becoming only the fifth man to win a career grand slam.

It remains to be seen quite how much the prolonged five sets semi-final victory over Andy Murray, which spilled into Saturday afternoon, has taken out of the Serbian star.

Wawrinka had already sealed his spot in the final before the start of Djokovic's titanic battle with Murray began late on Friday afternoon.

Watch all of the action LIVE on ITV4 from 1.30pm today, with coverage continuing on ITV at 3.10pm after England's international football match against Ireland.
