Nick Kyrgios won his first grand slam title with close friend Thanasi Kokkinakis in the men's doubles at the Australian Open.

Kyrgios and Kokkinakis have enjoyed a brilliant run at Melbourne Park and it culminated in a 7-5 6-4 victory over fellow Australians Matt Ebden and Max Purcell in front of a packed crowd on Rod Laver Arena.

The pair celebrated with a chest bump as they became the first all-Australian pair to win the title since Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde in 1997, following up a joyous day for home fans after world number one Ashleigh Barty ended the country's 44-year wait for a singles champion.

The pair have been friends since childhood and won the Wimbledon junior title together nine years ago.

"What a week," said Kokkinakis. "Nick, I love you brother. I can honestly say we did not expect to even come close to this."

Kyrgios added: "This week has been a dream come true and I wouldn't want to do it with anyone else. I'm just super happy. I don't know how we're doing this or what's going on."
