King Novak! Djokovic beats Roger Federer in dramatic Wimbledon final
Novak Djokovic (centre) was crowned Wimbledon champion today for the third time, beating Roger Federer (inset) in a nail-biting final.
The Serbian 28-year-old soared to victory for the second year running following a four-set thriller. He screamed in delight and pumped his arms after winning his first match point, before eating some of the hallowed Centre Court grass. The World Number One sealed the win - his ninth grand slam title - in the fourth set of the game, with the match ending 7-6, 6-7, 6-4 and 6-3. The players were welcomed on to Centre Court with roaring applause from the crowd which included Pippa Middleton, Helena Bonham Carter, Kate Winslet and Anna Wintour (pictured left, clockwise) and Bradley Cooper, Hugh Grant, Jeremy Piven and Benedict Cumberbatch (pictured right, clockwise).
