spainSpain has won its third European Championship after a blistering performance by the talismanic Pau Gasol inspired them to an 80-63 points win over Lithuania in Sunday’s final.

The Chicago Bulls centre, who carried the Spaniards throughout the competition, picked 25 points and racked up 12 rebounds as the 2009 and 2011 winners enjoyed a fifth successive podium finish.
