Denmark's Joachim B Hansen records a final-round 68 to claim victory at the AVIV Dubai Championship by one shot.

Joachim B Hansen wins his second European Tour title with a one-shot victory at the AVIV Dubai Championship.

The Danish player has enjoyed a consistent few weeks, posting six top-25s in seven attempts, but a final-round 68 earned him glory in the Middle East.

Hansen, the world number 170, hit four birdies during a faultless closing 18 holes, keeping him ahead of Francesco Laporta and Bernd Wiesberger.

The latter of those players shot a 65 on Sunday to make significant headway up the leaderboard, boosting his chances of winning the Race to Dubai.

England's Andy Sullivan was among a group of four players in a share of fourth, while Padraig Harrington built on his T12 at the Portugal Masters with eighth place in Dubai.

Tommy Fleetwood had to settle for 13th position after only carding a final round of 70.
