In this talk I will consider the black hole formed as a result of a binary black hole coalescence. As expected, the final black hole eventually approaches a Kerr solution. We show numerically, in full general relativity and in the non-linear merger regime, how the final black hole approaches equilibrium. In particular we show how the infalling radiation wipes out the deviations from Kerr and the rate at which the multipole moments decay to their asymptotic values.
