Astralis has won the CS:GO FACEIT London Major 2018, with a comprehensive win over Natus Vincere in yesterday evening's grand finale.

Nuke, Overpass and Inferno were the maps in play for the finals, but with Astralis taking consecutive points from the first two encounters, the series concluded before Inferno could be played.

Here's the team celebrating immediately after their win (be warned, it's extremely loud at the very start of this clip):

As well as taking home the series' ultimate glory, Astralis also pockets a meaty $500,000 for winning the tournament.

The remaining $500,000 from the overall prize pool will be distributed amongst the other seven teams from the Champions Stage of the tournament, with higher amounts for higher finishing spots, naturally.

The CS:GO FACEIT London Major 2018 has been the UK's largest esports event to date, and has seen sell-out crowds attending the closing matches at Wembley Arena in London.

If you'd like to catch up on any of the action you might have missed, you can grab all of the matches directly from the FACEIT London 2018 link which can be found under CS:GO's Watch tab.

There's also an archive of matches from all stages of the tournament on the event's official YouTube channel.
