Novak Djokovic has overtaken rival Rafael Nadal to win a record 23rd grand slam title after beating Casper Ruud in the French open final.


The 36-year-old triumphed in straight sets over his Norwegian opponent to claim his third championship at Roland Garros.



He will now be looking to defend his Wimbledon title next month having won at sw19 in each of the last four editions.


Earlier, Iga Swiatek maintained her recent grip on the French open by fighting past Karolina Muchova to win her third Roland Garros title in four years.

Swiatek, who has now won four grand slams, is the first woman to defend the title since Justine Henin in 2007.
