Alexander Zverev said his ATP Finals triumph was the "biggest title" of his career after shocking Novak Djokovic in Sunday's final.
The 21-year-old German, who was booed by Roger Federer fans after beating their idol 24 hours earlier, saw off the world No 1 6-4 6-3 to the delight of the vast majority at London's O2.
Zverev, 6ft 6in tall with his long hair and gold chains, has a definite star quality - and now he can add the London crown to his three Masters titles.
