The ANTARES neutrino telescope was completed in May 2008 and its first results of the searches for point-like and diffuse neutrino fluxes are presented. The sensitivity reached for point-like searches for a live time of 295 days and for declination lower than −50° is of 7.5×10−8 GeV−1 cm−2 s−1. For the search of diffuse flux the observed number of events is found to be compatible with the background expectation and a 90% CL upper limit of 5.3×10−8 GeV cm−2 s−1 sr−1 for a total live time of 334 days was set. The multi-messenger ANTARES program is also briefly described with particular emphasis on the neutrino alert system for the detection of transient source of neutrinos.
