In Tennis, world number two Rafael Nadal has lifted the French Open Men's Singles title for the 12th time. 

In the summit clash played at Paris last night, the Spaniard defeated Austrian fourth seed Dominic Thiem, 6-3, 5-7, 6-1, 6-1 to win at the Roland Garros for the third straight year. 

The 33-year-old became the first player to win 12 Singles titles at the same Grand Slam and has now won 18 majors overall.

Nadal is now just two titles behind Roger Federer's all-time record of 20 majors and is three ahead of world number one Novak Djokovic. 

Nadal also took his Paris record to an astonishing 93 wins and just two losses. The win also gave Nadal an 82nd career title and 950th match win.   25-year old Thiem suffered his second Grand Slam final defeat after he lost to Nadal in three sets in last year's title clash.
