Seventeenth seed Federer, a former World No.1, won the final 6-4, 3-6, 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 in three hours and 38 minutes at Melbourne Park. The 35-year-old had last won a Major title before this at 2012 Wimbledon. Federer, 35, had lost six of the previous eight Grand Slam finals he'd played against 
Nadal, and had only previously beaten the left-handed Spaniard in 11 of their 34 matches.

 Federer was in tears as he won the thrilling summit clash against his great rival Rafael Nadal. The Swiss marvel also became the oldest man in the post-1968 Open era to win a Major final since Australia's Ken Rosewall at the 1972 Australian Open.
