I am trying to end my table with a \hline.

My tex is as follows

\begin{center}
\begin{tabular}{ l | c || r }
\hline
1 & 2 & 3 \\ \hline
4 & 5 & 6 \\ \hline
7 & 8 & 9 \\
\hline
\caption{ Result }
\label{tab:a}
\end{tabular}
\end{center}

However the resultant image is as follows:

enter image description here

As you can see an empty row gets added below the end. Can somebody tell me how to correct it?

\caption and \label must be placed outside the tabular environment.

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}

\begin{table}
\centering
\begin{tabular}{ l | c || r }
\hline
1 & 2 & 3 \\ \hline
4 & 5 & 6 \\ \hline
7 & 8 & 9 \\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\caption{Result}
\label{tab:a}
\end{table}

\end{document}

Note: The use of \caption indicates that you're placing your tabular inside a (floating) table environment; in that case, I recommend to replace the center environment with \centering.
