Animal centre serves up Murray the puppy

A puppy born during the Wimbledon final has been named Murray to celebrate the British tennis player's historic win. The rest of the litter, born in the aftermath of Andy Murray's straight sets victory, have been named Deuce, Ace and Summer by staff at The Blue Cross centre in Southampton.

The puppy's mother Blossom had been found wandering the streets of Southampton two days before the final.

Murray to win? Wouldn't bet on it

The entire nation will be backing Andy Murray today in his bid to become the first man to win a singles title at Wimbledon since 1936. But if his Swiss opponent, Roger Federer, won then there would be some compensation for an Oxfordshire based charity.

Oxfam could reap more than £100,000 if a late benefactor's wager comes off. In 2003 Nick Newlife, from Oxfordshire, put £1,520 on Federer winning seven Wimbledon titles by 2019, at odds of 66/1. He died in 2009 but left the betting slip, potentially worth £101,840, to Oxfam in his will.
