Andy Murray capped off a dream injury comeback as he defeated Marin Cilic to win his third Aegon Championships at Queen's Club.

Murray, who was beaten in his opening match at the tournament by Nicolas Mahut last year, re-took his title with a 5-7, 7-5, 6-3 victory.

The Briton's serve was especially impressive in the rain-delayed match, as he recovered from a set down to defeat defending champion Cilic who was belatedly beaten when he struck a tired forehand into the net.

Success at Queen's should also prove ideal preparation for Wimbledon - which starts later this month - after the 26-year-old missed the French Open through a back injury. 

Concerns were raised when Murray slipped and fell clutching his groin mid-way through the first set, but the world number two was thankfully unharmed. 

After winning the title, Murray went back on to court to play a pro-celebrity match in aid of the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity - which also featured the likes of Tim Henman, Ivan Lendl, Boris Johnson, Michael McIntyre and Jonathan Ross. 

A tweet from the Lawn Tennis Association confirmed that Murray, whose close friend and Davis Cup doubles partner Ross Hutchins is being treated by Royal Marsden, donated his £73,000 winnings from the tournament to the charity.
