Former world champion Stuart Bingham won the Gibraltar Open with a 4-1 victory over defending champion Ryan Day in the final.

Bingham lost the first frame after he missed a red on a break of 48 and Welshman Day made an 83 clearance.

But the 2015 world champion made breaks of 100, 84 and 103 en route to victory.

The win earned Bingham £25,000 while his run to the final ensured the Englishman a place at the lucrative Tour Championship, starting on Tuesday.

"My main goal this week was to get into the Tour Championship. Once I got that, I relaxed a bit and had my eyes on the title," said Bingham.
