A record crowd of 27,372 filled out Pierre Mauroy Stadium in Lille, France on Sunday night to witness Pau Gasol lead Spain to the title at EuroBasket 2015.

Playing in front of a record crowd for an indoor basketball game in Europe – which took the total attendance for the 16-day event to 711,131 – that included esteemed fans His Majesty the King of Spain Felipe VI and Lithuania President Dalia Grybauskaitė, Gasol produced another MVP-worthy performance, finishing with 25 points and 12 rebounds as Spain eased by Lithuania 80-63 to claim their third EuroBasket title in the last four editions of the competition.

It therefore came as no surprise that Gasol was named as the Tournament’s MVP, presented by Tissot.
