Following Sunday’s historic win, Andy Murray was back on the court in Kennington in south London earlier, playing tennis with school children and young people – some of whom had queued up from 6am – at an event organised by Adidas.

Players were challenged to “hit the winner” against Murray. Anyone who successfully returned the ball got to have their photo taken with the Wimbledon champion and a replica of the trophy.

Despite returning Murray’s serve, which was probably a little under the 130mph balls being sent Djokovic’s way in the final, Channel 4 News’s athletic presenter Jon Snow was outsmarted by a short ball across court.
