Tiger Roll has won the 2018 Grand National.

The 14-1 shot held a sizeable lead going into the final straight and, trained by Meath man Gordon Elliott, he held on to win - just.

It was a photo finish as Pleasant Company came from what looked a hopeless position to cause a sweat as the horses crossed the line.
