Andy Murray, 25, beat the Swiss world number one Roger Federer in the straight sets, 6-2, 6-1, 6-4, on a boisterous Center Court, capturing the Olympic men’s singles final at Wimbledon, the biggest title of his career.

Murray is the first British man to win the Olympic singles gold medal since Josiah Ritchie in 1908. The Briton had never defeated the Swiss in a best-of-five-sets match and lost to Federer in this year’s Wimbledon final.

Murray then stood on the podium with Federer and bronze medallist Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina, who defeated Serbia's Novak Djokovic 7-5 6-4 in an hour and 48 minutes earlier in the day.
