Elvira carded a 66 to stand at one shot behind while Rahm is joint-third with Sweden's Henric Sturehed, both of whom matched Elvira's six under for the day.

Ireland's Paul Dunne saw his overnight three-shot lead cut to just one stroke at the Spanish Open on Saturday and will face a two-pronged home attack in Sunday's final round from Nacho Elvira and world number four Jon Rahm.

"I'm just happy to play the way I did and to get it done", Rahm said after his victory.

He joins Antonio Garrido, Seve Ballesteros, Sergio Garcia, Alvaro Quiros and Miguel Ángel Jiménez as winners of the event, which has been a staple on the European Tour since 1972. "It's probably the hardest Sunday I've ever had to play because the amount of crowds I was carrying".

"I will keep doing what I am doing - get through this evening because I am a little bit disappointed - but Spain has a great champion in Jon and I am sure he will win many more of these".

His fifth arrived at his home Spanish Open at the weekend and, afterwards, he revealed that the pressure of the "favourite" tag made it the hardest Sunday he's endured in his short professional career to date.

The 23-year-old Spaniard earned his third European Tour win a week after finishing fourth at the Masters in Augusta. I felt that tension, I felt that stress, I felt everything magnified. They were pushing me so hard and I felt that.

The Arizona State graduate began the day two shots behind Dunne, but birdied the first hole to begin his charge.

The tournament was eventually decided on the short 17th as Rahm escaped with a par after nearly sending his tee shot into the water, the ball just holding up in the rough. As a golfer it's hard to deal with the public's emotions, so I tried to isolate myself and that's perhaps why I didn't play my best golf.

Irishman Dunne signed for a closing 71 to finish at 18 under, a shot clear of Elvira and two ahead of South Africa's George Coetzee. I've been blessed to be national champion with the Spanish Golf Federation many times, European champion and world champion representing them. "They payed a huge part, I came for them mainly so I'm just glad I can win this one for the Spanish people".

Dunne, the British Masters champion, was "disappointed" to miss out on a second European Tour victory but, at the same time, expressed his delight for the victor. Ian Poulter led going into the last round but closed with 75 to finish joint seventh.
