Russia’s Maria Sharapova produced a stunning performance to outclass Simona Halep in three sets in the final of the French Open in Paris on Saturday.

The 27-year-old was still made to battle hard throughout the contest and conceded the second set before stepping it up a gear in the decider, eventually winning through 6-4, 6-7, 6-4 in two hours and 40 minutes.

This win sees Sharapova clinch her fifth grand slam title while Halep will rise to number three in the world rankings on Monday.
