(Reuters) - Britain's Tommy Fleetwood kept his composure to come from behind and win his first European Tour title in more than three years at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship on Sunday.

Fleetwood's second tour win came after he began the final round one shot behind overnight leader Tyrrell Hatton.
