Murray wins Wimbledon in straight sets 6-4 7-5 6-4

Andy Murray ended 77 years of hurt for British tennis as he clinched the Wimbledon men's singles title.

Not since Fred Perry won for the third successive year, in 1936, had the grass-court grand slam seen a home victory in the men's final.

But Murray put last year's defeat to Roger Federer firmly behind him by beating world number one Novak Djokovic 6-4 7-5 6-4 on Centre Court.
