China's Invictus Gaming wins League of Legends World Championship

Invictus Gaming has become the first Chinese team to win the League of Legends World Championship, beating European side Fnatic 3-0 in the final.

Both Invictus and Fnatic eased through their semi-finals 3-0 last month, setting up what many hoped would be a blockbuster final. However, Invictus dominated the best-of-five match in Incheon, South Korea this weekend, needing just 26 minutes to go 1-0 up. 

Fnatic grew as the match progressed and provided a sterner test in games two and three, but the Chinese side ended up comfortable winners.

For the past five years, a Korean team has been crowned world champions. This year, no Korean team reached the semi-final, with USA's Cloud 9 and Europe's G2 Esports taking joint third and fourth place. 

The last time a European team won the title was in 2011, when Fnatic beat fellow Europeans against All authority in the final.
