Tyrrell Hatton overturned Rory McIlroy's overnight lead to win the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship by four shots.

The Englishman began the final round one behind Northern Ireland's McIlroy but the world number nine's bogey-free six-under 66 saw him win on 18 under.

Australian Jason Scrivener also shot a 66 - and was seven-under for his back nine - to finish second on 14 under.

World number six McIlroy birdied the last to close with a level-par 72 and claim third spot on 13 under.

Englishmen Tommy Fleetwood, Chris Paisley and Matt Wallace ended the championship in joint sixth on 10 under alongside Paraguay's Fabrizio Zanotti, one shot behind Scotland's Marc Warren and David Lipsky of the United States.

"It's surreal to be honest. Even knocking the putt in on 18 doesn't seem like I've won the tournament but it's amazing," said Hatton, 29.

"I've always loved starting my season here in Abu Dhabi and to now add my name on that trophy with so many great champions before me is a huge honour."
