Ozeki Takakeisho captured his fourth top-division title Sunday by winning a championship playoff against 21-year-old rank-and-file sensation Atamifuji at the Autumn Grand Sumo Tournament.

Having entered the 15-day tournament as a demotion-threatened kadoban ozeki, Takakeisho finished in a two-way tie for the lead at 11-4 with sole overnight leader Atamifuji, who was beaten by former ozeki Asanoyama on the final day.

Takakeisho advanced to the playoff at Ryogoku Kokugikan with a victory over sekiwake Daieisho (10-5) that knocked the winner of a single Emperor's Cup out of contention.
