He told BBC’s Sue Baker that this victory meant more than his first three years ago adding that he would like to celebrate this victory more that his previous one.

Prime Minister David Cameron, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, London’s Mayor, Sadiq Khan and Murray’s wife were among the important dignitaries in the Centre Court in Wimbledon.

The 29-year-old said that the presence of Cameron made his victory even sweeter.

He said, ‘It’s much more difficult being a prime minister than winning the Wimbledon final.”

He added, “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 in the semis 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 added.

With the victory, Murray has become the first Briton to win multiple Wimbledon singles titles since Fred Perry in 1935.

His victory came after fellow briton, Lewis Hamilton, won the Formula 1 race at home circuit in Silverstone.
