South Africa's George Coetzee beat Denmark's Thorbjorn Olesen in a play-off to win the Mauritius Open.

Coetzee, 28, birdied the final hole to go level with Olesen on 13 under par before another birdie at the second extra-hole sealed victory.

It was Olesen's first tournament since having surgery on his left hand in February.

World number 63 Coetzee, who won the Tshwane Open in March, moved up to 10th in the Race to Dubai rankings.
