Struggling to hold back tears as he was presented with the runner’s up plate, Murray congratulated his Swiss opponent, who equalled Pete Sampras’ seven Wimbledon singles titles and has now banked an astonishing 17 grand slam single titles. 

The final was watched by over 20m people, with the likes of David Cameron, Boris Johnson, David and Victoria Beckham and Kate and Pippa Middleton in attendance.
