Bischofshofen (Austria) (AFP)

Polish double Olympic champion Kamil Stoch secured the Four Hills ski jumping tournament with his final effort to land glory at Bischofshofen.

Stoch brought the curtain down on the event before a 25,000 crowd who braved chilly conditions to see him add the final major title missing from his CV.

He had already won a world championship, and tasted World Cup successes as well as his Olympic titles.

Friday, he saw off Austria's Michael Hayboeck and fellow Pole Maciej Kot.

Norway's overall World Cup leader Daniel Andre Tande had been in with a shout of Four Hills glory after wins at Innsbruck and Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

But he lost his balance on his final jump to see his chances slip away.
