"I'm over the moon," said London's world number 12, after claiming the 11th Tour title of his career.

"What makes it so special is everything David's achieved - he's a wonderful player," added the 24-year-old.

Palmer, 32, contesting the 49th PSA Tour final of his professional career, said: "Peter was too fast. He weathered everything I put out."
