6:11 am on 9 July 2013

Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell broke away from the pack on the homeward nine holes to win the French Open golf championship in Paris by four shots.

The 2010 US Open champion shot a final round of 67 while his main rival, South Africa's Richard Sterne collapsed on the homeward nine, dropping three shots in six holes.

It's McDowell's second title of the year.
