Well, what a week it's been.

From Nicolas Colsaerts' eight consecutive birdies on Thursday right down to the one birdie that won it all this afternoon for Rikard Karlberg.

The 72° OPEN D'ITALIA presented by DAMIANI certainly did not disappoint.

Good night from all of us here at the European Tour.

The champion is speaking to all sorts of media now. Here's some more from him.

"Its crazy. 

"I told my caddy on the last five holes that we probably needed five birdies to have a chance and two was enough to get in a play-off and get my first win and to do it against Kaymer it feels unbelievable.

"I just tried to hit the fairway which I wasn't even close to doing and just seeing him splitting the fairway felt, 'okay, I'm not going to win on his mistake, I need to do a birdie'.

"I had a perfect yardage on the last shot there and a good lie, thankfully. It was a little bit lucky but I hit it great. It felt nice."

"I don't want to win on his mistake, I wanted to do a birdie," said the champion.

"To do it against Kaymer is incredible."

The champion has the trophy in his hand.

He will also go home with 250,000 euros.

What a day for the 28 year old.

Nerves of steel from the Swede. A purer stroke you will never see and he has his first win on the European Tour.

And what a way to do it.

He sneaked through the field on the back nine and kept his head. Great performance.

Rikard Karlberg is the champion!

Kaymer misses low. Didn't give it enough.

Opportunity for Karlberg.
