Frenchman Alexander Levy wins for the first time on the European Tour by holding off the challenge of Tommy Fleetwood to claim the Volvo China Open by four shots.

The Frenchman was three shots clear at the front heading into the final 18 holes, but had Englishmen Tommy Fleetwood chasing him down at Genzon GC.

Levy's double bogey at 15 gave Fleetwood a chance, but a dropped shot at 18 ended his challenge.

Levy recovered well from his slip up to birdie the par-five 17 after a superb second shot into the green, and then birdied the last to finish the tournament on 19-under par and secure a four-shot win.

European Ryder Cup stars Henrik Stenson and Ian Poulter finished in a tie for fifth, behind Francesco Molinari and Spaniard Alvaro Quiros, whose double bogey at the last cost him the runner-up spot.

Levy was ranked 282 in the world prior to this week's events.
