Novak Djokovic won, quite literally, the biggest prize in tennis on Sunday as he claimed victory at the Tel Aviv Open.
The Serbian beat Croatia's Marin Cilic 6-3, 6-4 in the final to win his first title since Wimbledon in July.
For his victory in Israel, the 35-year-old was handed a comically large, almost three-foot-tall trophy.
"In awe at the size of this trophy," tweeted the US Open alongside a photo of Djokovic lifting the title. "Absolute unit."
"Does he get a year's supply of wine to fill that cup?" tweeted one fan, while another said: "That is some trophy."

The Tel Aviv Open was Djokovic's first regular tournament since Wimbledon, having only played in the Laver Cup since his win at the All England Club.
His lack of match practice, however, didn't stop him from dominating throughout the tournament.
He won the title without dropping a single set.
"I played some very good tennis, I think. I [didn't] drop a set the entire week," said the 35-year-old after lifting the hefty trophy.
"I hadn't played a tournament in three months so it was really extra motivation for me to really do well, particularly because people have been so friendly and so supportive of me throughout the week."
