Canadian Milos Raonic has stunned 17-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer to win the 2016 Brisbane International.

Raonic beat Federer for just the second time in his career, with a 6-4, 6-4 win over the 34-year-old.

The win further cements Raonic's credentials as one of the young rising stars who could push the likes of Federer, Djokovic, Murray and Nadal for a Grand Slam title in 2016.
