Switzerland’s Stan Wawrinka produced a superb display to stun World number One Novak Djokovic in four sets in the final of the French Open on Sunday.

The eighth seed, who was making his 11th Roland-Garros appearance, had to dig deep and conceded the first set before finding his range.

Djokovic, who was bidding to stretch his winning streak to 29 matches, had outclassed nine-time champion Rafael Nadal and Britain’s Andy Murray en route to the final, but Wawrinka proved unstoppable eventually winning through 4-6, 6-4, 6-3, 6-4.

The victory makes him only the second Swiss to win at Roland-Garros after Roger Federer, the man he beat in the quarter-finals.
