The win also means Germany qualify automatically for the handball tournament at the Rio Olympics in August.

Kai Haefner was Germany's top scorer in the final with eight goals while goalkeeper Andreas Wolff was again outstanding.

The unexpected triumph in Poland is Germany's first men's handball prize since winning the world title at home in 2007. They previously won the Euros in 2004.

Croatia earlier beat Norway in the third-placed game.
