A British man has won the Scrabble World Championship for only the second time.
Craig Beevers beat New Yorker Chris Lipe in a tense match at the Excel Centre in London on Sunday afternoon, after coming out 3-1 on top, in the best of 5 final.
33 year old Beevers, who is from Middlesbrough and a former TV Countdown champion, told London Live he was "relieved" to have won, after taking a 2-0 lead in the match, as he then felt enormous pressure to push home his advantage.
He wins £3,000 prize money and becomes the first British champion since 1993.
The decisive play in the final game was when he put down 'Talaq' , a Muslim term for divorce, winning him 42 points and giving him an unassailable 440, to Chris 412.
