Team New Zealand have won the 36th America’s Cup.

Defender TNZ beat Luna Rossa 7-3 in the best-of-13 series with a dominant 46-second victory in race 10 off the coast of Auckland.

The America’s Cup is known as the ‘Auld Mug’, and is international sport’s oldest trophy.

It is Team New Zealand’s fourth America’s Cup triumph after winning in 1995, 2000 and 2017.

This was the Italian’s third time in the America’s Cup, having lost 5-0 to TNZ in 2000 and 4-1 to the United States in 1992.

After fierce sailing on Tuesday, the decider ended up a procession for the home yacht as TNZ’s superior speed left the Italians in their wake.
