The Belfast Giants have won the Elite League title for a fourth time.

They defeated Nottingham Panthers 3 - 1 on Sunday afternoon.

The side also needed Dundee Stars and Sheffield Steelers to lose in order to take the title.

For weeks it had been a case of when they would win the Elite League title rather than if they would be champions.

Their first league triumph came back in 2002, and was followed by success in 2006 and 2012.
