Novak Djokovic has won his 10th Australian Open title and equalled Rafael Nadal's record of 22 men's grand slam singles titles after what he called the "biggest victory" of his life.

Djokovic will also reclaim the world number one ranking from Spain's Carlos Alcaraz after his 6-3, 7-6 (7/4), 7-6 (7/5) victory over third-seeded Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas.

The 35-year-old Serbian sobbed uncontrollably after the match as emotion poured out of him.

The past month saw him in the spotlight after returning to a nation he was kicked out of last year.

His injuries were questioned and his father โ€” still absent from his box last night โ€” after a video showed him with Russian supporters put Djokovic at the centre of controversy.
