Great Britain 16U boys have won the Junior Davis Cup title after defeating second seeds Italy 2-0 in the final on Sunday.

The GB team of Evan Hoyt, Kyle Edmund, Luke Bambridge and captained by former world No.4 Greg Rusedski, capped an impressive week to win the title for Great Britain for the first time.

Hoyt got GB off to the perfect start after beating Stefano Napolitano 6-4, 6-3 in the first singles rubber and the title was secured following Edmund's 6-3, 6-4 success against ITF junior No.58 Gianluigi Quinzi in the second singles rubber.

After the victory Edmund said: "It's great to win and be world champions. As a team, we played really well all trip and it showed today."

The team began the week with three consecutive victories in the group phase against Thailand, Germany and Canada before overcoming the sixth seeds France in Saturday's semi-final.

Victory follows the team's previous success in August where they won the European Summer Cup beating Italy once again in the final in Le Touquet, France to claim the Borotra Cup for the first ever time for Great Britain in the 40 years of the event.
