Andy Murray has clinched his first tennis title since 2017.

The former world number 1 came from a set down to beat fourth seed Stan Wawrinka 3-6, 6-4, 6-4 in the final of the European Open in Antwerp.

It was the first final between the pair in 11 years. 

Murray, who appeared on the brink of retirement after losing in the first round of the Australian Open in January, had career-saving hip surgery earlier this year.

He won his last title at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships in March 2017 when he was still the top-ranked player in the world.
