Marcel Siem's glorious return to the DP World Tour winner's circle sparked a host of congratulatory messages from some of the Tour's biggest names.
The popular German fought off the challenge of countryman Yannik Paul on Sunday to claim his fifth title at 2023 Hero Indian Open, eight years and 116 days on from his previous DP World Tour victory.
Former Ryder Cup Captain Thomas Bjørn - a 15-time DP World Tour winner - hailed "a very special win for a top guy", while Nicolas Colsaerts was among the other players to congratulate the 42-year-old.
Here, we take a look at some of the messages Siem received.
