The 12th seeded Serb, Novak Djokovic, won his fourth Wimbledon title on Sunday against South African Kevin Anderson. 

The 31-year-old beat eighth-seeded Anderson in straight sets. 

Djokovic won 6-2 6-2 7-6 (7-3) to claim a 13th Slam - his first major since the 2016 French Open.

Eight-seeded Anderson knocked the Swiss tennis star Roger Federer out of the championship, while Djokovic saw off another favorite Rafael Nadal, over two days in the second semi-final.

Novak Djokovic said his Wimbledon title was all the more significant as he got to lift the trophy in front of his young son Stefan who was in the stands.

He said: “It feels amazing because for the first time in my life I have someone screaming ‘daddy, daddy’ and it’s a little boy right there.”
