England's Martin Gould won his first world ranking title by beating Luca Brecel 9-5 in the final of the German Masters.

Gould built on his 5-3 interval lead in Berlin to claim the trophy and the £60,000 top prize.

The world number 20, who had knocked out Judd Trump and Graeme Dott on the way to his third ranking final, made two century breaks of 104 and 110.

Surprise finalist Brecel was the first Belgian to appear in a ranking final and only the second European from outside the UK and Ireland since Malta's Tony Drago lost the 1997 International Open to Stephen Hendry.
