Rafael Nadal is honoured to be the only person to have won seven French Open tennis titles.

The Spaniard overtook Sweden's Bjorn Borg, who had six titles, after he defeated Novak Djokovic in the continuation of the final on Tuesday morning.

Nadal won in four sets and says becoming the French Open's most successful player ever is a great achievement.

He says he feels honoured to have overtaken Bjorn Borg.

Nadal also ended Djokovic's dream of holding all four grand slam titles at once.
