Rafael Nadal celebrates with the trophy after winning against Djokovic at the Roland Garros stadium, on June 11, 2012 in Paris.
Spain's world number two Rafael Nadal has clinched a record seventh French Open title, defeating Serbia's top seed Novak Djokovic.
Nadal won against Djokovic 6-4, 6-3, 2-6, 7-5 in the Men's Singles final tennis match during the French Open tournament at the Roland Garros stadium on Monday.
"This tournament is probably the most special in the world and having this trophy with me I am really emotional. It is probably one of the most special moments in my career," Nadal said.
The Spaniard overtook Sweden's Bjorn Borg, who won six Roland Garros titles.
He also ended Djokovic's hopes of becoming the third man to win four consecutive grand slams.
Djokovic admired his rival and congratulated him and his team for another title.
"I am privileged to be in this position for the first time. Rafa was a better player and I hope to come back next year and play even better," he said.
