Antoine Rozner claimed a maiden European Tour win in Dubai

Antoine Rozner secured a maiden European Tour title with a thrilling two-stroke victory at the Golf in Dubai Championship.

The world No 204 carded an eight-under 64 on the Fire Course at Jumeriah Golf Estates, with a tap-in birdie at the par-five last setting the clubhouse target at 25 under.

Overnight leader Andy Sullivan required a final-hole eagle to force a play-off with the Frenchman but could only make a closing par, leaving him tied-second alongside Matt Wallace, Francesco Laporta and Mike Lorenzo-Vera.

Andy Sullivan had held the lead after each of the previous three rounds
