    The Frenchman Alexander Levy has won the shortened Portugal Masters title after the final round was cancelled due to heavy rain on Sunday.

    The 24-year-old had played only a single hole of round three at Oceanico Victoria Golf Club before a bad weather returned and the organisers finally cut to 36 holes.

    Levy has now claimed his second European Tour, the previous was at the China Open in April this year. He opened the tournament with rounds of 63 and 61, three shots ahead of Belgium’s Nicolas Colsaerts.

    “It’s very special. If at the start of the year you said to me I would win two tournaments I would say ‘never’,” Levy told Sky Sports.

    “But it is a very nice feeling to me. I am very happy, I worked hard on this game.

    “I think I played a good game this weekend and in China.”

    With this victory, Levy becomes the first ever Frenchman to record multiple ET victories in the same year.
