Nadal wins French Open for third time

Rafael Nadal has won his third consecutive French Open title.

He's beaten world number one and top seed Roger Federer in the final.

The Spaniard won in four sets 6-3, 4-6, 6-3, 6-4

It's the first time since Bjorn Borg in 1980 that someone has claimed three successive men's titles at Roland Garros.

In the process Nadal has ended Federer's hopes of holding all four Grand Slams at once.
