Alexis Pinturault showed off his all-round skill, claiming his first ever giant slalom victory.

The Frenchman clocked a time of 2:32.42 seconds in Kandahar.

It is 21-year-old’s fourth World Cup victory, all in different disciplines.

He has also won a slalom and super-combined this winter and won parallel slalom last season.

Second place went to World Cup leader Marcel Hirscher.

The Austrian had a sub-standard morning run, but fought hard in the second leg to finish 0.60 seconds adrift.

The third spot on the podium went to three-time world champion Ted Ligety.

The American, who is fresh from claiming three golds in Schladming earlier this month, finished 0.63 seconds off the pace.
