France’s second World Cup triumph, exactly two decades after the first, leads the list of sporting highs of the past twelve months.

Their victory in Moscow also saw Didier Deschamps become the third man in history to win international football's greatest prize as both player and manager.

Les Bleus' 4-2 final victory over Croatia and Paul Pogba's subsequent dressing room celebrations feature in RFI's 2018 Sports Retrospective.

Also, Caroline Wozniacki speaks frankly about her rheumatoid arthritis diagnosis, which came in a year that the Dane finally landed a grand slam. In men's tennis, Novak Djokovic returned to the top – winning the US Open after securing a fourth Wimbledon success.

Le Golf National played host to the Ryder Cup and a famous European win over the United State.

And Lewis Hamilton's dominance in Formula 1 continued as the Briton claimed a fifth driver's championship with Mercedes.
