Di Canio hails Sunderland win

Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio says the club's 1-0 win over Everton on Saturday was one of his greatest moments in football.

A first-half strike from Stephane Sessegnon handed the Black Cats their first victory over the Toffees since December 2001. The result sparked celebrations at the final whistle as it also moved the club six points above the relegation zone.

Speaking after the match, Di Canio said: "The emotion was one the best moments in my sports life."
