Lukasz Kubot and Robert Lindstedt celebrated in style after winning a Grand Slam men's doubles title at their first attempt at the Australian Open.

Kubot climbed into the stands and embraced his supporters after the 6-3 6-3 victory over American Eric Butorac and Raven Klaasen of South Africa.

It was a fairytale result for the Polish-Swedish duo, who were contesting their first Grand Slam championship together.

Before arriving in Melbourne, they had failed to win a match in three tournaments together.

Kubot became the first Polish man to win a Grand Slam men's doubles title for 36 years, when Wojtek Fibak paired with Kim Warwick at the 1978 Australian Open.
