World number one Novak Djokovic won his fourth Australian Open title as Andy Murray's hopes of a second major win ended in pain.

The Serb was the stronger man, winning in four sets as Murray struggled to cope with blistered feet.

"I played a good second set," said Murray. "I created quite a few chances, but didn't quite get them."

Djokovic became the first man in 46 years to win for three years running in Melbourne.
