Andy Murray will play Novak Djokovic for the fourth time in an Australian Open final after he came from behind to win a five-set epic against Canada's Milos Raonic.

Murray's pursuit of a third grand slam title looked doomed when he twice trailed by a set but the Scot proved his resilience again on Rod Laver Arena to win 4-6 7-5 6-7 (4/7) 6-4 6-2.

It means Murray goes through to face Djokovic in Sunday's showpiece, when he will have to record only his second win in 12 meetings against the Serb to clinch a first Melbourne crown.
