2013 Wimbledon Champion Andy Murray

We’ve waiting 77 years for this! Brit Andy Murray has won Wimbledon 2013. The first Brit to do so since Fred Perry in 1936! At one point Murray – the world number two – flung his racket on the ground in frustration during a difficult second set for the British hopeful but he came back to win it, taking the match to 2-0. He won in 3 sets, 6-4 7-5 6-4 in 3 hours and 10 minutes, and claim his second major title after the Olympics last summer.

Thousands of people descended on the famous All-England club, including Prime Minister David Cameron, Scotland First Minister Alex Salmond, Victoria Beckham and Wayne Rooney, while millions tuned in to watch the action on television worldwide.

Congratulations Andy!
