Andy Murray has won Wimbledon for the second time in his illustrious career after overcoming Milos Raonic in three sets.

The Scotsman went into his 11th Grand Slam final having come out victorious just twice. However, it was the first time he would play someone other than Roger Federer or Novak Djokovic.

Raonic, the seventh seed, had beaten Federer over five sets in the semi-final while Sam Querry caused one of the tournament's great shocks by knocking Djokovic out in the third round.

But the big server from Canada was not allowed to settle in the way he was against Federer and succumbed to a 6-4, 7-6, 7-6 defeat. Thanks to BBC's Twitter page, we can now bring you the moment he won.

Upon lifting the famous trophy, the 29-year-old struggled to hold back his emotion.

Here is what he had to say afterwards:

He said: “The most important tournament for me every year. I’ve had some great moments here and some tough losses. I’m glad to get my hands on the trophy again. I played really good stuff but Milos has had a great few weeks on the grass and had some unbelievable wins. His match against Roger was a great match and he is one of the harder workers out there.

"Each time we’ve played each other, he’s made big movements. He has a really nice team, Carlos, Riccardo and John. His physical trainers are also very nice, well mannered. It’s true, it isn’t always the case. Sorry about the last few weeks.”
