Kamil Stoch won the overall ski jumping World Cup for the first time in his career.

The Pole secured his first title on the large jump at Planica in Slovenia. The 26-year-old double Olympic Champion could only take fourth place but he had built an unassailable points total going into the last event of the season.

Stoch becomes the sixth man to win individual World Championship, Olympic and World titles having won normal and large hill gold in Sochi.

Severin Freund won on the day twice leaping 137.5 metres to set a new record on the large hill at Planica and so claiming the ninth World Cup victory of his career.

He won with a total of 289.1 points narrowly ahead of Norway’s Anders Bardel on 288.8.
