Stanislas Wawrinka becomes the Australian Open champion after beating an injury-hit Rafael Nadal in Melbourne.
Wawrinka withstood a fightback from the world number one, who was struggling with a back problem, to secure his first Grand Slam title 6-3 6-2 3-6 6-3.
The Swiss had never won a set, let alone a match, in 12 previous attempts against Nadal.
