US Open champion Andy Murray has arrived back on British soil to cheers following his historic win in New York.

The champion flew into Heathrow's Terminal 5 at around 9am with girlfriend Kim Sears and was greeted by British Airways staff and excited members of the public.

The Scot became the first British man in 76 years to win a major singles title when he beat Novak Djokovic over five sets in the US Open final.

The US win completed a successful few months for the 25 year old, who followed a Wimbledon final with Olympic gold.

Andy Murray: 'Where's my watch?'

Moments after Andy Murray's glorious win at New York's Flushing Meadows there was a moment of panic for the 25-year-old when he was unable to find his watch by sponsors Rado ahead of the trophy presentation.

He was seen grimacing and removing his shoes before hobbling over to girlfriend Kim Sears and shouting up at the box: "Do you have the watch?"

Fortunately for the Scot, Sears knew exactly where the watch, reportedly a Rado D-Star Automatic Chronograph worth £2,580, was - in his bag on the court.

She seemed more concerned about why Murray was wandering around the court in his socks though, asking him twice: "Where are your shoes?"
