Australian Cameron Donald won the Superstock race on Monday morning to complete an Isle of Man TT double.

The Relentless Suzuki rider, who won Saturday's Superbike race, triumphed by 15 seconds with John McGuinness second and Guy Martin in third.

They were followed by Ryan Farquhar, Conor Cummins and Adrian Archibald while the fastest lap was set by Donald at 127.54mph.

Bruce Anstey, the winner for the last four years, was forced to retire.

The New Zealander was challenging for a leaderboard position when he was forced out at the end of lap two.

Keith Amor and Gary Johnson also retired during the four-lap event.

"I can't believe it - the Superbike race was amazing but this was really special," said Donald.

"All the top riders were in the race and the bike worked so well. On lap two I got my head down and it really felt good.

"Once I crested the mountain on the last lap I knew it was mine.

"I'm just happy to keep the Superstock crown for Suzuki and the Relentless team."

Donald finished 10 seconds ahead of his team-mate Anstey to claim his first Isle of Man TT win in the Superbike race.

The action continues on Monday afternoon with the Supersport race.
