Men complete the sweep

A few hours after the women's triumph, the Chinese men completed a remarkable double after also outplaying Indonesia in a late-night 3-1 final win to claim its 11th Thomas Cup title.

World No 2 Shi Yuqi started strong in the opening singles match as he thrashed Anthony Sinisuka Ginting 21-17, 21-6 in 43 minutes to set the tone, before doubles teammates Liang Weikeng and Wang Chang put the host in the driver's seat by beating Fajar Alfian and Muhammad Rian Ardianto 21-18, 17-21, 21-17 to build a 2-0 lead.

Despite Li Shifeng's tough 2-1 loss to world No 3 Jonatan Christie in the second singles fixture, Team China tied up the loose ends in style with a second doubles win by He Jiting and Ren Xiangyu over Muhammad Shohibul Fikri and Bagas Maulana.

It was just the second time in 12 years that China swept both team titles at the Cup doubleheader.
