Murray's first Olympic final underway

Roars, applause and sunshine greeted Andy Murray as he walked on to centre court to start his bid for double Olympic gold today.

Murray, 25, is facing Roger Federer in the men's singles final, just a month after his heartbreaking loss to the Swiss player at Wimbledon.

If Murray wins, he will be the first Briton to take men's singles gold since 1908 in London.
