Serbia's Novak Djokovic won his first Wimbledon title and proved himself the best player in the world with an incredible, though well deserved win over Rafael Nadal.
Djokovic came through 6-4 6-1 1-6 6-3 to to dethrone Nadal as Wimbledon champion, before overtaking the Spaniard as world number one on Monday.
It was his 50th win in 51 matches and his fifth win over Nadal this year.
He is the first Serbian man to win Wimbledon, his third Grand Slam title after two Australian Open victories.
"It's really hard to describe with any words except that it's the best day of my life, the most special day of my life," Djokovic told BBC Sport.
"This is my favourite tournament. I always dreamed of winning the first tournament I watched in my life. I think I am still sleeping and having my dream.
"When you're playing the best player in the world, Rafa Nadal, who has won two of the last three Wimbledons, he has always been winning the big matches against me in the Grand Slams and I had to be on top of my game today.
"I probably played my best match ever on the grass-court and I want to congratulate him for having a great tournament."
