Jon Rahm birdied the final hole to win the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai on 19 under par and clinch the European Tour's season-long Race to Dubai title.

Rahm holed a three-foot putt to finish one ahead of England's Tommy Fleetwood and win the event for the second time.

Rahm becomes the second Spaniard to achieve the feat after the late Seve Ballesteros, who won it six times.
