The 31-year-old, who triumphed in New York in 2011 and 2015, sealed his third title at the final Slam of the year with a hard-earned straight-sets win over the Argentine.

The famously emotional Del Potro could not contain his emotions as he sat in his chair after the match and Djokovic made a point of consoling him.
