Andy Murray sensationally became the first British man to be crowned Wimbledon champion in 77 years today, after beating Novak Djokovic in three straight sets in the men's singles final.

The 26-year-old is the first home player to lift the men’s singles trophy since Fred Perry in 1936 after winning the match 6-4, 7-5 and 6-4. Murray, who has spoken of the importance of crowd support during the tournament, was greeted with a standing ovation and cheers as he beat the world number one.

The Scot threw his hands in the air, smiling before embracing his Serbian opponent. He kicked a tennis ball into the crowd and then dropped to his knees, shaking. His girlfriend Kim Sears jumped out of her seat in the players' box at All England Club's most famous court as Murray secured his victory.
