Andy Murray became the first British man to win a tennis Grand Slam in 76 years after being crowned champion at the US Open.
Murray made history after beating Novak Djokovic in a thrilling five-set match at Flushing Meadows in New York.
The 25-year-old Scot won his first grand slam at his fifth attempt - the same as his coach, Ivan Lendl.
Murray's win makes him the first man to win Olympic singles gold and the US Open in the same year and his victory will help keep the nation's Olympic feelgood factor alive.
