Novak Djokovic after his loss to Dominic Thiem in the French Open semi-finals

Novak Djokovic's quest to hold all four majors for the second time in his career was brought to an end by Dominic Thiem in the French Open semi-finals on Saturday.

World number one Djokovic triumphed at Wimbledon and the US Open in 2018, before adding the Australian Open crown at the start of this season.

The Serbian was hoping to join Rod Laver as the only man in history to win four straight majors on two occasions, but Thiem defeated him 6-2 3-6 7-5 5-7 7-5 to secure the place opposite Rafael Nadal in Sunday's final.

We look at who Djokovic beat during a stunning 26-match winning run at the grand slams.
