With his idol Rod Laver watching on and handing over the trophy, the 35-year-old produced a gutsy and at times magnificent performance to claim his first major title since Wimbledon in 2012 and beat Nadal in a Grand Slam for the first time since 2007.

Federer’s 6-4 3-6 6-1 3-6 6-3 triumph cements his status at the top of the game where he now sits four clear of Nadal and Pete Sampras.
