Mark Cavendish is happy to have topped the general and points classifications at the Tour of Qatar.

Mark Cavendish has said that he is "over the moon" after topping the general classification standings of the Tour of Qatar.

The 27-year-old, riding for Omega Pharma-Quick Step, took his fourth consecutive stage win to ensure that he finished the six-day race in the yellow jersey, as well as finishing top in the points standings.

After the race, the Briton told reporters: "I'm over the moon. [There was] a little bit of pressure on me and I was a bit nervous. But I'm really happy to get the win.

"I am so happy and proud I can bring it home again for the team again. We have won Tour of Qatar six times, and I don't know how many stages, so I am happy to be a part of that."

It is only the second time during his career that Cavendish has taken a general classification win.
