Arnaud Clement and Michael Llodra upset top seeds Bob and Mike Bryan to win the Wimbledon men's doubles title.

The French 10th seeds lost the first set on a tie-break but fought back to triumph 6-7 (5-7) 6-3 6-4 6-4.

Making their Grand Slam debut, the duo are the first French men's doubles champions at Wimbledon for 74 years.

America's Bryan twins were involved in controversy in the second set when umpire Lars Graff ruled that Bob had touched the net on break point.

"You know they are replaying it right now on TV and you're looking really stupid," he told the official.

The Bryans had been chasing a fifth Grand Slam title in their 13th final and had not dropped a set all tournament.

After throwing rackets and t-shirts into the crowd following their surprise victory, Clement had to borrow a shirt from his brother Bruno to ensure he did not accept his trophy bare chested.

"Seriously, I have to play a tournament next week in Newport. I have no more rackets now," his partner Llodra joked afterwards.

Twice an Australian Open doubles champion, Llodra claimed his third Grand Slam success while Clement, a former Australian Open singles runner-up, took home his first Slam title.
