Andy Murray takes the Wimbledon title for the second time in his career, beating the Canadian Milos Raonic in straight sets

This was a victory that gave a chord to many fans; even his poker-faced coach, Ivan Lendl, couldn’t hold back his emotions as Andy Murray hoisted the coveted silverware.

Andy Murray became the first Brit to win multiple singles in the Wimbledon championship, dismantling the tall young Canadian in the process.

In 2013 the Scot ended the 77-year wait for male success at the home of world tennis but here we saw a more relaxed Murray, who visibly enjoyed the encounter.

“I am very proud to be having my hands on this trophy once again,” said Murray

Fans had to queue up to take a place on Henman Hill to watch the match on a big screen, and the ones who got a spot at centre court, well, they were just so lucky.

Even though Murray, now a mature 29-year-old, had been there and done it before, you could feel the joy and confidence coursing through his veins as the match was going clearly going his way.

“This is one of my most important victories as this is my favourite tournament,” quoted an emotional Murray. “I have had some great moments in this tournament throughout the years in my career,” he added, hinting that this was his finest achievement.

He was later photographed enjoying an ice bath but still clutching the Wimbledon trophy!
