Prime minister congratulates Davis Cup winners

Prime minister David Cameron has met Great Britain's triumphant Davis Cup team at 10 Downing Street.

Team captain Leon Smith paraded the trophy alongside his team and Cameron after beating Belgian over the weekend.

British No.1 Andy Murray won his two single matches in Gent, as well as teaming up with brother Jamie for a victorious doubles match, as Great Britain won the trophy for the first time in 79 years.

With the score currently tied at 1-1, the pair will be hot favourites to give Britain the lead in Ghent on Saturday.

Should they do so, victory for the British number one over Belgium's top seed David Goffin on Sunday would hand Britain its first Davis Cup title since 1936.

Speaking before taking to the court with his brother, Murray said: "I believe in myself. I believe in me and Jamie as a doubles team, as well.

"But it's obviously going to be tough. Goffin's a top-quality player when he plays well. I'm aware that will be a very tough match to win. In the doubles, Davis Cup is always tough, never easy, just because of the way doubles is played."

The British team were almost handed an unexpected boost on Friday when debutant Kyle Edmund took a two set lead in his tie against Goffin - but the Belgian came back to secure victory.

Murray's three-set win over Ruben Bemelmans meant the scores were tied going in to the second day.
