As it happened

  1. 2100: 

    Andrew Flintoff's Ashes road show has now finished, but tune in to BBC Radio 5 live at 1900 BST on Tuesday for Michael Vaughan and Phil Tufnell's Ashes preview show. Sportsday Live will return on Tuesday morning. Good night.

  2. 2059: 

    Ex-England batsman Chris Broad: "Everyone is reckoning that England are favourites and I think 3-1 to England."

    Former Australia batsman Damien Martyn: "I am going 2-1 to Australia."

    Ex-Australia bowler Glenn McGrath: "I've dug a hole for myself in the past. I think there will be a result in every Test match and I have to agree with Damien."

  3. 2056: 

    Former Australia batsman Damien Martyn: "The crowd is a huge part of The Ashes. Look at the last Lions Test over the weekend, the whole ground was red and I think that helped the British and Irish Lions. There are certain moments when you play against England and the Barmy Army are so loud you can't hear yourself think."

  4. 2052: 

    Ex-Australia batsman Damien Martyn: "The first over will be big. I remember that Test match in 2005 and Justin Langer was cut from a bouncer. It made us realise England were serious, even though we won that first match."

  5. 2051: 

    Ex-Australia bowler Glenn McGrath: "It will work in Australia's favour that they are underdogs. Everything is finally heading in the right direction. England are the favourites and Australia have nothing to lose."

  6. 2049: 

    Ex-Australia batsman Damien Martyn: "I think Australia will be nervous but excited about the series starting. The tour games have been good, with some good performances. On Tuesday is when it hits home... you go and collect your thoughts and realise it starts on Wednesday."

  7. 2048: 

    IBF and WBA super-middleweight champion Carl Froch: "I'm hoping to fight again before Christmas, maybe late November or early December. There is a mandatory opponent (George Groves) and people also want to see a rematch with Mikkel Kessler. We're in the negotiations stage at the moment and it's hard to get an opponent."

  8. 2042: 

    IBF and WBA super-middleweight champion Carl Froch: "I played a lot of cricket as a kid and I won a tournament when I was nine-year-old and we won boxes of chewing gum. The Ashes is massive, one of the biggest sporting events."

  9. 2040: 

    IBF and WBA super-middleweight champion Carl Froch: "I've had a lot of tough opponents, but Mikkel Kessler is one of the top three toughest."

  10. 2034: 
    Carl Froch

    Carl Froch has joined Andrew Flintoff's Ashes road show and has told BBC Radio 5 live that he is in negotiations with fellow British boxer George Groves about a fight for the IBF super-middleweight title.

  11. 2028: 

    Ex-Australia batsman Damien Martyn: "Some of the Australia bowlers in this series are unknown even to me but it's exciting, our bowling attack is a strength. It's an aggressive attack and it's the batting I think we need to work on. I don't mind being the underdog, I am interested to see how England cope with the pressure of being favourites."

  12. 2021: 

    Ex-England batsman Chris Broad: "The England bowling attack is experienced but I like Australia paceman James Pattinson, he is a really good bowler. If it swings, Mitchell Starc is dangerous too."

  13. 2019: 

    Former Australia batsman Damien Martyn: "As fielders, we'd watch Glenn McGrath and at the end of his over, he would kick the floor, get his hat and go chuntering down to third man. We'd laugh at him."

  14. 2014: 

    Former Australia bowler Glenn McGrath: "I haven't seen a great deal of new England opener Joe Root, so the Aussies need to be aggressive towards him and try to unsettle him. He needs to know it's Test cricket. If he gets a few bad scores, he might then slip back down the order."

  15. 2008: 
    Glenn McGrath

    Former Australia batsman Damien Martyn: "I felt privileged to play with Shane Warne and Glenn McGrath - in the history of the game they were right up there. We were in a special era."

  16. 2006: 

    Former Australia bowler Glenn McGrath: "It filled you with confidence, walking out with the Waugh brothers, Shane Warne and Matthew Hayden. The best thing about cricket is that it's a team sport. You don't want to let anyone else down. Winning and celebrating as a team was special."

  17. 2004: 

    Former Australia bowler Glenn McGrath: "It never got boring, beating England. The first Test of the 1997 series was my first taste of the Ashes and England won that game at Edgbaston. I remember watching the England players celebrating and that moment always gave me motivation throughout my career."

  18. 1959: 

    Former England batsman Chris Broad: "In 1986-87, there wasn't the hype surrounding an Ashes series that there is now. However, like now, winning the first Test is crucial and we did that and went on to win the series."

  19. 1953: 

    Ex-Australia bowler Glenn McGrath: "Michael Clarke reminds me of Steve Waugh at the moment. He keeps coming in with three down and not many on the board and scoring a lot of runs."

  20. 1952: 

    Former England batsman Chris Broad: "I think Shane Watson has to open for Australia, he is a quality player technically. He doesn't score enough runs though - two hundreds in three or four years is not good enough for a frontline batsman."

  21. 1950: 

    Ex-England captain Andrew Flintoff: "I'm surprised somebody like Jonathan Trott or Ian Bell didn't put their hands up and offer to open the batting for England so Joe Root can continue to develop in the middle order. For Australia, I think Shane Watson will have a fine series. His stats don't tell the true story and if he can score runs, Australia have got a chance."

  22. 1947: 
    Darren Lehmann

    Ex-England batsman Chris Broad: "When Australia changed their coach, you did wonder why they would do that three weeks before an Ashes series. But Darren Lehmann is a true Aussie and he will not sit on his laurels. He will want to take it to England and I think he will inspire the likes of David Warner and Phil Hughes. It's a good move for Australia."

  23. 1945: 

    Former Australia batsman Damien Martyn: "I like Darren Lehmann's idea of getting Shane Warne and Glenn McGrath to talk to the bowlers. It's good to mix with ex-players, but you don't want that to happen at each Test match. Individuals have to enjoy the moment."

  24. 1942: 

    Former Australia batsman Damien Martyn: "I think Darren Lehmann will be good for David Warner. I think we will see a more improved player on and off the field."

  25. 1939: 

    Former Australia bowler Glenn McGrath: "The Ashes is big in the UK at the moment, the British are on fire with Andy Murray and the Lions so we are hoping it is third time lucky."

  26. 1937: 

    Andrew Flintoff has been joined by Glenn McGrath, Damien Martyn and Chris Broad in Nottingham.

  27. 1933:  

    Andrew Flintoff's Ashes road show has now started on BBC Radio 5 live. It is also available to view on the Red Button and at the top of Sportsday Live.

  28. 1931: 

    Australia opener Chris Rogers has urged his team-mates to "stand up" and take some of the pressure off captain Michael Clarke during the Ashes series.

    "We can't leave it all up to Michael," said Rogers. "If we're to win this then the other guys really need to stand up and I think we need 11 contributors out there.

    "There's a role for all of us, particularly in the top order. We know they're going to come hard and they have excellent bowlers.

    "Our guys are in good form, though, as we've shown over the last few weeks. We're ready to go and hopefully we'll have a little bit of luck and put some pressure back on them."

  29. 1927: 
    Billy Cooper

    Graeme Swann regrets the absence of England's premier cheerleader 'Billy the Trumpet' for his home Ashes Test - but has reluctantly accepted the decision to ban musical instruments at Trent Bridge.

    Swann describes it as a "shame" Barmy Army trumpeter Billy Cooper will not be allowed to serenade England's Test cricketers in this week's first match of the series.

    England and Nottinghamshire off-spinner Swann said: "Personally I think it is a shame.

    "I know the whole team are behind Billy, and the Barmy Army are a massive part of the English team."

  30. 1922: 

    Australia are preparing to "unleash" a new generation of prospective Ashes-winners on England in the first Test at Trent Bridge.

    "I think we've got some very exciting players in our squad," said wicketkeeper Brad Haddin. "One thing we have in our favour is you just don't know what some of these guys are capable of on the international stage.

    "We've got a lot of talent in that room and some very, very exciting cricketers.

    "It's going to be exciting to see them unleashed in the biggest series of all."

  31. 1917: 

    Sir Ian Botham insists Darren Lehmann's appointment as Australia coach will not stop England recording back-to-back Ashes series whitewashes.

    Lehmann, 43, replaced the sacked Mickey Arthur ahead of the first series, which starts at Trent Bridge on Wednesday. England travel to Australia in October for the second five-Test series.

    "I haven't seen anything to remotely make me feel as though I need to change my initial prediction of a double 5-0," said Botham in his Daily Mirror column.

    "There is simply no department in which I think Australia have got an edge over England."

  32. 1913: 

    Over on BBC Radio 5 live, there is a special programme celebrating Andy Murray's Wimbledon title success on Sunday.

    And, following Murray and the British Lions's successful tour of Australia, England cricketer Graeme Swann said: "The country rallied behind Andy Murray and there were the Lions.

    "It's a good time to be British."

  33. 1909: 

    How do you win an Ashes series? Five former winners have been telling BBC Sport's Marc Higginson what it takes to beat Australia.

    Former England captain Michael Vaughan, who won the urn in 2005, believes a good understanding of your opponent is essential.

    "I wanted to get closer to them and for our players to see they were human, so by us having a drink with them after the first and second Tests at Lord's and Edgbaston, you see them as human," he said.

    "By getting close to them, I found out that a few of them didn't get on - like their wicket-keeper [Adam Gilchrist] and spinner [Shane Warne] - so when they were giving it the big one about team spirit, I knew it was fake. I knew they were not as tight as they thought."

  34. 1905: 

    Sportsday Live is now preparing for Freddie Flintoff's Ashes road show from Trent Bridge, which will be on BBC Radio 5 live and the Red Button from 1930 BST. You can send in your Ashes predictions to us, via #bbcsportsday on Twitter.

  35. 1900: 

    Marseille have agreed a deal in principle to sign teenage defender Benjamin Mendy from Le Havre, the Ligue 1 club have confirmed.

    The 18-year-old left-back was strongly linked with a move to Sunderland but it appears Marseille have beaten Paolo Di Canio's Black Cats to his signature.

  36. 1858: 

    Scotland's Stephen Gallacher has had an Open reprieve after former champion John Daly pulled out of next week's event at Muirfield.

    After yesterday's French Open Gallacher learned he had missed out on a spot at the 142nd Championship.

    But the withdrawal of Daly, the 1995 Open winner, means the 38-year-old is now in the field.

  37. 1855: 
    Andy Murray

    Andy Murray on events since his Wimbledon triumph: "The best bits? We went to the Champions dinner last night that was cool, there were lots of past champions there - Rod Laver etc, so to spend time with them was great.

    "And tonight, I'll hopefully get the chance to spend time with friends and family because I haven't had much chance to spend time with them."

  38. 1850: 

    Amr Nail: He deserves it, if not now then later, whatever happens in his future career. Besides, Sir Andy Murray has a nice ring to it.

    Duncan Ledingham: Hype about Murray getting a knighthood after his #Wimbledon success. Fred Perry, did he? The concepts getting pointless.

    Nick Jehan: Wiggins had already won gold medals in different disciplines in cycling before Tour de France. Andy needs more wins. Give it two years.

    Should Andy Murray be knighted after his Wimbledon triumph? #bbcsportsday.

  39. 1843: 
    Preston North End in 1889

    It took 77 years to banish the longevity of Fred Perry's win at Wimbledon thanks to Andy Murray. What are the other big waits in global sport?

    - 123 years since Preston North End won the title. It last won the English football league first division in the 1889-90 season. In those days they were known as the Invincibles. They are still waiting to repeat the feat.

    - 104 years. The Chicago Cubs have not won baseball's World Series since 1908 - it will be 105 years by the time the World Series is contested this October. They have become known as the "Loveable Losers". They came close in 1984 but were deprived of a place in the World Series final after losing out to the San Diego Padres.

    - 38 years of waiting for England to win the Cricket World Cup. The competition, which takes place every four years, began in 1975. England, despite hosting the tournament four times and reaching the final on three occasions, have never lifted the trophy.

  40. 1836: 

    From Martin Emmerson, BBC Radio Newcastle:

    "Having collapsed from 222-4 to 253 all out Durham will at least be pleased with how things have panned out today against Derbyshire.

    "That's because Chesney Hughes went for a second ball duck to Chris Rushworth without a run being added in the first over of their innings.

    They closed day one on 15-1, after batting eight overs."

  41. 1833: 

    From BBC Northampton's Chris Egerton:

    "An entertaining day in beautifully sunny conditions and the match is evenly-poised between the Second Division's top two. Northants were untroubled before lunch, before Glen Chapple's three wickets threatened to put Lancashire on top.

    But an excellent rearguard led by Cameron White - in his first first-class match since March - and ably supported by David Murphy has kept Lancashire in the game. Karl Brown's bad drop of Murphy off Chapple in the closing overs of the day may yet prove costly for the Red Rose."

  42. 1832: 

    Sportsday rounds up the big sporting stories of the day on the BBC News channel and BBC Sport website.

  43. 1825: 

    The hot weather on Sunday led to a not-so-typical response to Andy Murray's win by British fans, who went outside to enjoy the weather rather than put the kettle on, reports Utility Week.

    In a reverse to the usual surge of electricity during an appointment-to-view national sporting event, people ventured outside when the match was over instead of opting for their favourite brew during a break in play, or reach for a cold drink out of an already-running fridge.

    A spokeswoman for National Grid said that the hot weather for the clash between the pair had affected the energy supply figures for the National Grid: "It's clear that people were watching their televisions [during the Wimbledon final] instead of doing things like using other electrical items."

  44. 1817: 

    El Yaro: Murray should enjoy this brief window, because when Froome wins the Tour and Sports Personality of the Year we'll forget him.

    Sid Ives: One hundred % Andy Murray to be knighted eventually. His achievements are mega, he has worked so hard. Tour de France is a fair bit a team effort.

    Lewis Howard: In relation to others that have been knighted, Murray deserves five knighthoods but they are dished out far too easily.

    Should Andy Murray be knighted after his Wimbledon victory? #bbcsportsday.

    He has now left the reception.

  49. 1742: 

    From Martin Emmerson, BBC Radio Newcastle: "The Derbyshire bowler Mark Footitt has helped himself to career-best figures of 6-53 as he steamed his way through the Durham middle order and tail, seeing them off for just 253.

    "Durham lost their last six wickets for 31 runs in 11 overs. The collapse began when Keaton Jennings went for 93, LBW to Wes Durston, just before the new ball was due.

    "Then with the new cherry in hand Footitt took the wickets of Gareth Breese, Phil Mustard and Callum Thorp in one over, before claiming Chris Rushworth four overs later. He missed out on recording Derbyshire's best bowling figures against Durham by one run. Kevin Dean took 6-52 in Derby in 2000."


    David Taylor: I think Mark Cavendish deserves an honour first - in Europe he is a king of the bicycle. Then Murray.

    Dan Cherry: US Open, Olympic Champion and now Wimbledon, deserved knighthood for Murray in my opinion.

    Andrew Paterson: Murray has won two majors and Olympics against arguably the best tennis players ever under massive pressure, he deserves it.

    Should Andy Murray be knighted following his Wimbledon triumph? Let us know your thoughts, #bbcsportsday.

  52. 1730: 

    The Football League have "reluctantly approved" the application for Coventry City to play their home games at Northampton Town.

    A statement read: "In the Board's view, it was a matter of "deep regret" that it had not proved possible for the club's proposed purchaser to reconcile its differences with the owners of the Ricoh Arena - Arena Coventry Limited (ACL).

    "However, with the new season less than four weeks away, the Board required certainty as to where the Club would play its matches from the start of the new campaign."

  53. 1726: 

    London Paralympic gold medallists Sophie Christiansen, Natasha Baker and Sophie Wells have all been named on the GB team for next month's European Para-Dressage Championships in Denmark.

    "For me it's an honour to be back working with the manager once again.

    "We'll keep working hard to try and help the club achieve all of its goals."

  58. 1657:

  59. 1650: 

    Bryan Robson believes Manchester United fans will "forgive" Wayne Rooney if he decides to stay at the club.

    United manager David Moyes has said the striker is not for sale, however speculation remains that Rooney may leave this summer after nine years at Old Trafford.

    Robson, who appeared over 450 times for United, said the situation was similar to when Rooney was sent off in the quarter final of the World Cup in 2006. On that occasion, Cristiano Ronaldo infamously winked as his then club team-mate Rooney left the pitch, angering both England and United fans.

    "After two games, Ronaldo was playing fantastic when he came back to Old Trafford. Everybody forgot about it and everybody loves Ronaldo," says Robson.

  60. 1646: 

    Cristiano Ronaldo wants to play out the rest of his career at Real Madrid, club president Florentino Perez said in an interview on Monday.

    The Portugal forward and former World Player of the Year has a contract with the Spanish side until 2015 but speculation has linked the 28-year-old with a possible move away from the Bernabeu.

    "The person who wants to retire at Real Madrid is Ronaldo, and Real want him to retire here too," Perez told broadcaster Univision in quotes carried in the Spanish media.

    "There haven't been any negotiations (on a new deal) because he is on holiday. Be in no doubt, Cristiano will retire here because he wants to. Just as (Zinedine) Zidane and other great players have done."

  61. 1641: 
    Andy Murray cake

    A cake replica of Wimbledon champion Andy Murray is displayed in Dunblane to celebrate his Wimbledon victory.


    Andrew O'Brien: Why should Murray be rewarded for 77 years of mediocrity by British men's tennis? If he is knighted, then so should Mo Farrah?

    Duncan Bradshaw: Winning the Tour de France is a far greater achievement than winning one tennis major. Let him win more before we get excited.

    Euan Green: Good grief, he's won Wimbledon, which is a massive achievement, but let his career progress first before awarding a knighthood.

    Should Andy Murray be knighted following his Wimbledon triumph? Let us know your thoughts, #bbcsportsday.

  63. 1629: 

    Barcelona have reached an agreement to sell Spain striker David Villa to Atletico Madrid, the Spanish champions said in a statement on Monday.

    However, during an interview with Univision, Perez insisted: "We don't want Higuain to leave. What's more no-one from Arsenal has come to us and made us any offers at all for him. There are no offers on the table."

  65. 1623: 

    Multiple Wimbledon champion Martina Navratilova on BBC News: "I thought Andy Murray was going to pass out in that final game.

    "His attitude has been an issue for a while, he's been too passive. He's done it step-by-step and now the doubt is finished he does not have to make other people happy any more he can just do it for himself.

    "Now he'll go for the number one. Now the fruit of his labour has paid off, he is in the prime of his life and it will be easy for him to stay on top of it."

  66. 1615: 
    David Cameron and Andy Murray

    Andy Murray has arrived at number 10 Downing Street, to rapturous applause from the staff of the Prime Minister's office.

    He shakes hands with Prime Minister David Cameron on the steps outside number 10, before joining a reception hosted by the Prime Minister in the Downing Street garden.

  67. 1611: 

    Northamptonshire's morning, but Lancashire's afternoon following Kyle Coetzer's dismissal from the third ball of the session. James Middlebrook's needless run out didn't help when he was well set and no batsman have achieved the dominance they managed before lunch.

    As usual, Glen Chapple has led the fight back with 3 for 25 in the session but Simon Kerrigan is beginning to obtain some turn from the Pavilion End.

  68. 1603: 

    Durham have reached 192-4 at tea, but it has been slow progress in the heat of Chester-le-Street.

    ANDY MURRAY- Andy Murray v Fred Perry

    Fred Perry, the British 1936 winner of Wimbledon, and Andy Murray, who won the tournament on Sunday, are both right-handers and, like Murray, Perry won his last Wimbledon title in straight sets.

    But unlike Murray's 6-4 7-5 6-4 three-hour battle against Serbia's Novak Djokovic, Perry's 6-1 6-1 6-0 victory over Germany's Baron Gottfried von Cramm took only 40 minutes.

  71. 1549: 
    ANDY MURRAY- Did you know?
    Bjorn Borg Swedish tennis player Bjorn Borg won the Wimbledon men's title from 1976-1980

    Before Andy Murray's Wimbledon win on Sunday, a total of 39 different men from 12 different countries won the tournament since Fred Perry triumphed back in 1936.

  72. 1544: 

    Former Wales midfielder Jason Koumas trained with Tranmere Rovers on Monday, reports BBC Radio Merseyside's Peter McDowall.

    Koumas began his career at Prenton Park, playing 150 times before joining West Bromwich Albion in August 2002.

  73. 1542: 
    Andy Murray

    It is the final section of our look at Andy Murray's path to Wimbledon champion which, of course, culminates with his win on Sunday ending Britain's 77-year wait for a men's champion with a hard-fought victory over world number one Novak Djokovic.

    The Scot, 26, converted his fourth championship point in a dramatic final game to win 6-4 7-5 6-4 and claim his second major title.

    In an atmosphere reminiscent of his Olympic final win last summer, Murray was willed on by the majority of the 15,000 spectators on Centre Court, thousands watching on the nearby big screen and millions more around the country.

  74. 1539: 

    Formula One Management camera crews are to be stationed on the pit wall for future races following Sunday's incident at the German Grand Prix, when a cameraman was struck by a bouncing wheel, F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone confirms.

    The wheel initially bounced past several startled mechanics in the Ferrari, Lotus and Mercedes pit crews before thudding into an unaware Allen.

    At present, current rules allow up to a maximum of six FOM camera crews only unlimited pitlane access during qualifying and the race.

    Wimbledon champion Andy Murray accepts that he doesn't have a definitive answer to how Britain can produce more tennis players capable of competing for tournament titles, but believes more access to courts for children would help.

    Murray tells BBC News: "I don't know all the answers, I think there are a few basic things that would help, having more courts would make it more accessible to people, especially youngsters.

    "I haven't sat down and thought exactly what needs to be done , there are a lot of people paid to do that, but getting more kids playing at a younger age would be a step in the right direction."


    Matthew Kilgour: I'm sorry but he's the first Brit to win Wimbledon in 77 years. What more do you need?! Give that man a knighthood!

    Newspapers and websites throughout the world have been reacting to Andy Murray's Wimbledon win, reports BBC Monitoring.

    In Germany, Daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung website carries an article with the headline "Salvation at Wimbledon" and writes: "The biggest possible burden that can rest on the shoulders of a tennis player fell off him at a stroke. Fred Perry was the last Briton to win here, in 1936 - now Murray has done it."

    An article on the Daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung website, meanwhile, says: "People were celebrating him as much as a champion can be celebrated, but Murray was still shaking his head. He looked serious, detached in a way. He tried to grasp the moment, to comprehend what had happened, but it did not look as if he was going to manage that."

The delay was explained at the time as "contractual issues" by sources close to the player - and understood to be a disagreement on the actual amount of money owed by Leicester to the player for the rest of his contract.

    An injury to Foxes striker David Nugent may also have been a contributing factor, but it has now emerged that Leicester are talking to the 29-year-old about cancelling the remaining time on his contract, effectively making him a free agent.

And it's a lot better winning. So the hard work is worth it and I just need to make sure I don't get sidetracked by anything."

    The 34-year-old Ireland centre played in the first two Tests, but was surprisingly left out by coach Warren Gatland for the final match which the Lions won 41-16.

    "It came as a jolt," he tells BBC Sport. "You back yourself to be part of the coach's plans having been involved in the first couple of Tests. Knowing Jamie [Roberts] was coming back from injury and the fact he [Gatland] went with a combination that have played together a lot of times, you have to suck that up. Life goes on."

    Inside Neil Harman reflects on what Britain's previous men's singles champion Fred Perry would have been doing looking down on Centre Court.

    "Dear old Fred Perry would have loved to see this," writes Harman. "One hopes that he was curled up with a nice glass of something upstairs, looking down with a fond fraternal nod to Murray, the 26-year-old who, at the climax to a day he will rarely better in his life, wandered around the court in a daze."

    Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond denies suggestions he sought to gain political profit from Andy Murray's Wimbledon win by displaying a Scottish Saltire flag directly behind David Cameron's head as the two leaders sat in the Royal Box on Centre Court on Sunday.

    Stressing that the incident happened after the match, in which Murray defeated Novak Djokovic 6-4, 7-5, 6-4, had finished, Salmond pointed out that, while Britain had waited 77 years, no Scot had won the tournament since Harold Mahoney in 1896.

    "It is not something that happens very often so I think a few Saltires hoisted over Wimbledon does not do any harm at all," he tells BBC Radio 4. "I had no idea what the seating arrangements were - that is absolutely the case."

    USA Today believe Murray's Wimbledon triumph could "signal a tilting of an entrenched dynamic".

    "Murray has become a significant force in the chase for majors," writes Douglas Robson. "With the season shifting to North American hard courts, Murray and Djokovic won't slow down. If Nadal's knee is not a problem, it sets up a tantalising summer between the trio that will culminate at the year's final Grand Slam in New York."

    The Australian's Jacquelin Magnay writes: "Amid a cataclysmic sonic roar that boomed in Centre Court, Andy Murray exploded into the affection of a nation claiming the first men's Wimbledon singles title for Britain in 77 years."

    BBC Radio Lancashire report Burnley's Charlie Austin is due for talks at Hull City today after the two clubs agreed a fee for the 24-year-old striker.

    Austin, who has a year remaining on his contract at Turf Moor, scored 28 goals in 40 games for the Clarets last season.

    Tennis Scotland chief executive David Marshall hopes Andy Murray's Wimbledon win on Sunday will encourage more youngsters to join their local tennis clubs.

    He tells BBC Radio 5 live: "We have been working on this for some time - we have known his moment was likely to happen.

    "All of our clubs and local authorities have been working very hard to make sure tennis is open, accessible and very cheap. Now we're encouraging people - not only on the Wimbledon fortnight - to get down to the tennis courts and give the game a go."

    Joe Durie

    Former world number five and 1984 Wimbledon quarter-finalist Jo Durie says success like Andy Murray's can be achieved if aspiring tennis players are prepared to work hard and get the right coach.

    She tells BBC Radio 5 live: "I started when I was eight because my older brothers played tennis. I was lucky in Bristol that there was a forward-thinking coach there at the time. I wanted to play tennis, I came from a sporty family, I never thought I would get to number five in the world but I wanted to play tennis every day.

    "Get the right coach in the right places and you can do wonderful things."

    Four-time Wimbledon semi-finalist, and close friend of Andy Murray, Tim Henman: "It's still sinking in - the day has gone down in the history books. Afterwards I wanted to get a picture of him with the trophy in the locker room, but he wasn't able to because he was busy talking to the media. But everyone else was having their photos taken - there was champagne being sprayed and being drunk. It was great."

    ANDY MURRAY- What the papers say

    Securing a second major wipes away any suspicion that Andy Murray's US Open win was a fluke, writes Kevin Mitchell in the Guardian. However, Mitchell doubts that winning Wimbledon will change Murray as a person.

    "He will not assume that his second slam title entitles him to walk with any more of a strut," he writes.

    "But neither will he deny that this is the next phase of his career, because, although winning one slam title was wonderful in itself, as was taking Olympic gold, securing his second major wipes away any suspicion that victory in New York was a one-off, when the wind blew kindly for him and every stroke clicked."

  143. 0941: 

    Former England Test cricketer Ian Botham says he cannot see beyond a double 5-0 win for England against Australia in the Ashes.

    Writing in his Daily Mirror column, Botham says: "I haven't seen anything to remotely make me feel as I though I need to change my initial prediction of a double 5-0.

    "There is simply no ­department in which I think Australia have got an edge over England."

    Blackburn Rovers sign defender Matthew Kilgallon on a free transfer from Sunderland.

    The 29-year-old signs a two-year deal, which will keep him at Ewood Park until the summer of 2015.

    "Matt is a good signing for us," says Rovers manager Gary Bowyer. "He will bring a lot of experience from playing in the Premier League and in the Championship."

  146. 0928: 
    Joe Kinnear

    Alan Pardew reiterates his authority as manager of Newcastle United following Joe Kinnear's appointment as director of football.

    Magpies owner Mike Ashley brought former boss Kinnear back to Tyneside to oversee recruitment, with Pardew reporting to the 66-year-old. However Pardew is confident he will maintain control of first-team affairs.

    "I'm my own man, and I will manage this football club to the best of my ability," he tells BBC Newcastle.

  147. 0924: 

    Robbie Deans will be removed as Australia coach and replaced by Queensland Reds coach Ewen McKenzie on Tuesday, according to reports in the Australian media.

    Fairfax Media said on Monday that McKenzie edged his ACT Brumbies counterpart, South African Jake White, to replace New Zealander Deans, who was contracted until the end of the year.

    The reported change comes immediately after Australia were beaten by the British and Irish Lions in Saturday's decider of their three-Test series. Already under pressure to improve the team's performance, Deans' tenure was put under even more scrutiny following the loss to the Lions.

    Andy Murray

    As we are talking about aspiring tennis players replicating Andy Murray, we will take a look at the British number one's path to Wimbledon champion over the course of several entries:

    At only 14, Murray won the National Junior Tennis Championships at the Nottingham tennis centre on 20 August, 1999.

  149. 0919:  
    Andrew Castle, Former British number one and BBC Sport commentatorANDY MURRAY

    On the possibility of any aspiring tennis player replicating Andy Murray: "I am from a fish and chip shop and a council house in Taunton. I had to go to America at 17 because I had no funding or belief from the governing body. There are clubs now where you can play cheaper than any time in the past and there is some knowledge around now in terms of starting in the game."

  150. 0915: 

    BBC Radio 5 live's Your Call is on air now with Tony Livesey discussing Andy Murray's Wimbledon win. One of the main topics of discussion is whether tennis is an elitist sport, or can anyone pick up a racquet and replicate Murray's achievement? How far will the inspiration from Murray's win go? Join the discussion.

  151. 0912: 

    Andy Murray tells BBC Radio 2 that he does not think he would have won his maiden Wimbledon if he had failed to convert his match points in the third set against Novak Djokovic: "That last game was the most challenging mentally I have ever played in my life. If I had lost that third set after four match points, it would have been hard to come back from."

  152. 0908: 

    West Bromwich Albion are preparing to step up their interest in Salomon Kalou, reports the Birmingham Mail.

    The Baggies are keen to bring in another forward, preferably in time for next week's pre-season camp in Austria. The Lille player has a £2.6m buy-out clause which would enable him to move.

  153. 0906: 

    Andy Murray tells BBC Radio 2 breakfast host Chris Evans that it is winning trophies, and not prize money, which motivates him: "When I was serving for the title, what creates the pressure is not the money on offer - I was thinking about winning Wimbledon. That is what makes you nervous. It is more about creating history than the prize money."

    On what he did when he woke up this morning: "I just got up, went downstairs, walked the dogs and fed them. Then I went to look at the trophy."

  154. 0901: 

    Sunderland are hopeful that Jozy Altidore will join up with his new team-mates at the club's Italian training camp, as the Black Cats look to finalise a deal for the striker, reports the Shields Gazette.

    Altidore was due on Wearside on Monday for a medical after AZ Alkmaar accepted an offer from Sunderland on Friday for the 23-year-old.

    The American international flew to England over the weekend and Alkmaar do not envisage any hurdles towards the deal, which is worth around £6m, although the Dutch club have refused to confirm a fee.


    skittlesy: Not a massive tennis fan but when you see someone working that hard to win a match, he deserves everything. Amazing.

    Andrew Priestley: The fact Murray is a success in the era of Federer, Nadal & Djokovic is more of an achievement than ending the 77 year wait.

    S.I.T: Of course Murray had the talent, will and determination. But my word, Ivan Lendl - take a bow. What a tennis genius.

    Warren Gatland believes the next crop of British and Irish Lions will have what it takes to end a 42-year wait for a Test series victory over New Zealand when the two sides meet in four years' time.

    This year's Lions squad are still celebrating a 2-1 success over Australia - their first Test series win since 1997 - achieved with a number of exciting young players playing crucial roles.

    Asked if he thought the Lions could win in New Zealand, current Lions boss Gatland says: "Yes, I think if we get things right in terms of the preparation and stuff. If you look at how young this squad is, a lot of them could be around in four years' time."

    Andy Murray

    A short breather for Andy Murray with just one BBC interview remaining - a BBC Radio 2 interview with Chris Evans. A busy hour for a man who has managed just over one hour of sleep.

  158. 0851: 

    Millions of people were glued to TV screens, listening on radios or following on their mobile phones as Andy Murray secured a historic Wimbledon win on Sunday, while coverage of his progress to the final dominated the newspapers.

    Murray explains to BBC Radio Scotland how he deals with the pressure of expectation: "You try and stay away from it [media coverage] I didn't have the TV on the last couple of weeks, I didn't read any newspapers, when you are in the stadium you feel the whole atmosphere there but you don't quite realise how many people are supporting you until you get off the court. I saw some of the images from Dunblane and Henman Hill and they were amazing."

  159. 0849: 

    Liverpool turn down a £30m bid from Arsenal for striker Luis Suarez, reports BBC Sport's chief football writer Phil McNulty.

    Suarez, 26, has been at the centre of transfer speculation after receiving a 10-match ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic at Anfield last season. Real Madrid had been expected to lead the pursuit of the Uruguayan after he said he had become disenchanted with life in England.

    Andy Murray on his plans over the next few weeks: "I would much rather have had a lie-in this morning! I'm going to try to take a holiday after the next three or four days when I will be meeting up with family and friends and going out for dinner.

    On becoming world number one: "It's tough - you have to be consistent throughout all year. I've won the Olympics, the US Open, finished runner-up in the Australian Open and now won Wimbledon in the last year - and I'm still nowhere near. The goal for me is to win another Grand Slam and not worry to much about rankings."

  161. 0843: 

    The agent of Newcastle midfielder Dan Gosling reveals his client will take a major pay cut to play again for Ian Holloway at Crystal Palace.

    Gosling played for Holloway as a youngster at Plymouth and his representative, David Hodgson, tells the South London Press: "If he had a chance to move to a big, big club or Palace then he joins Palace. Truthfully, that is the bottom line.

    "Dan's made that clear. Ian Holloway sent him on his way in his career - he gave him his first professional contract, gave him a first-team opportunity and helped him to play for England."

  162. 0839:  
    BBC Radio 5 liveANDY MURRAY

    Andy Murray on whether his celebratory climb up to the players' box was planned: "No. I've seen people do it before, but I wanted to spend that moment with the team that work with me all year and see all the work, on and off the court, that goes in."

    On whether winning Wimbledon is the pinnacle of his career: "I need to try to improve and use this as a springboard to try and get better. Will I win another slam? I don't know - I've just keep working hard, enjoy this and then get back to work."

  163. 0834: 

    Tunde Akere: Even in Lagos Nigeria, I and my friends celebrate the victory as if he is our countryman. Three straight set? Excellent Murray

    Will Radford: Watched Murray win yesterday in a bar in Croatia. When he won it made them be quiet so I could hear his speech. Not liked there.

  164. 0832: 
    Andy Murray

    Wimbledon champion Andy Murray arrives back at the All-England Club for his first TV interview of the day and tells BBC Breakfast that he has slept for about "one hour".

    "I feel all right. I'm tired. I've probably slept for about an hour, hour and a half," said the 26-year-old.

    And on the winning point: "When I went 40-0 up I was thinking 'I'm about to win Wimbledon'. Rarely do you lose your serve when you're 40-0 up. A few points later I'm facing break point - those three or four minutes of my career were the hardest points I've played."

  165. 0829: 
    Andy Murray

    Andy Murray also explains to BBC Radio 4 about whether he enjoys the moments when he is on court, especially in physically demanding matches like Sunday's final: "It is tough to explain. When a match finishes, if I lost it yesterday I would not have enjoyed it, but I won.

    "Yesterday was unbelievably physical - you need to embrace it, I don't know so much about enjoy but you need to embrace that situation. It was really, really tiring on court, one of the most challenging matches of my career.

    "I have always really enjoyed training, going to the gym and getting in better shape - all the pressure you have to deal with that makes playing Wimbledon hard and stressful.

    "It has not been easy the last few years. I have enjoyed trying to improve, but dealing with the pressures has been tough for me at times."

  166. 0824: 

    Andy Murray, speaking to BBC Radio 4, explains what he felt was the turning point in his career that led to his Wimbledon triumph on Sunday: "The two or three weeks after Wimbledon last year were really important. Wimbledon last year was the hardest loss of my career. I was emotional afterwards and I responded really well.

    "I don't know why that was. I don't know if it was a maturing process or just a release maybe, but I responded really well and as soon as I was back on the practice court I felt really good about my game and hadn't felt like that just prior to that."

  167. 0821:  
    BBC Radio 5 liveANDY MURRAY

    Four-time Wimbledon semi-finalist, and close friend of Andy Murray, Tim Henman: "I have great memories of myself playing at Wimbledon, but Andy has taken it to a totally different level. I grew up dreaming of winning this tournament and I was not able to do that. I was probably good enough to win Wimbledon but there were people better than me - the likes of Pete Sampras and Lleyton Hewitt. When I reflect on my achievements I can't complain."

  168. 0815: 
    ANDY MURRAY- What the papers say

    The Scottish Daily Record dedicates 12 pages to Andy Murray's Wimbledon triumph.

    "Sir Alex Ferguson was not in Murray's corner as he was during the US Open success last September," writes Colin Duncan. "Fergie was enjoying a cruise around the Scottish islands but the sage advice he passed on before setting sail appeared to work wonders.

    "The football man's words of wisdom on handling expectation proved invaluable as Murray showed the Wimbledon final loss last summer was the beginning rather than the end."

  169. 0811: 
    ANDY MURRAY- What is the win worth?

    By beating Novak Djokovic in Sunday's Wimbledon final, Andy Murray earned £1.6m in winnings. The world number two has already won nearly £18.5m in prize money and two years ago he had built up a fortune of more than £32m.

    Experts predict he could end up earning more than £100m.

    "His status will be unique as no other British tennis champion has reached these heights. His possible legacy is enormous, he will have the potential to make money for years," British PR agent Mark Borkowski told the Mirror on Saturday.

    ANDY MURRAY- What the papers say

    'After 77 Years, The Wait Is Over' says the front page of the Daily Telegraph.

    Inside is a 12-page Murray Wimbledon victory souvenir supplement, and Martin Briggs opens his report with: "It is the sentence British tennis has been waiting for ever since a wild-haired 17-year-old from Dunblane won the junior US Open. Andy Murray is the Wimbledon champion."

  174. 0750:  
    BBC Radio 5 live tennis analyst Jeff TarangoANDY MURRAY

    "Andy Murray's pillow will be made out of 'cloud nine'. He's probably not going to sleep until the US Open where he has to defend his title - that's when he will have to get ready. If he doesn't go out on the town, here in London and up in Scotland, for a few nights, then we know there really is a screw loose. Any normal person wants to burn off all that steam and show how happy he is."

  175. 0745: 
    Andy Murray

    BBC Scotland's Laura Bicker in Dunblane: "It is such a journalistic cliche - they are singing and dancing in the streets, but I have to say they really were doing that in Dunblane last night. They were gathered around the golden post box here, playing guitars and signing and dancing. It was an incredibly emotional day in Dunblane on Sunday and they are gearing up for a day of celebration today. For people here it is about a boy from Dunblane who has battled and shown so much determination - he now has a place in history."

    Andy Murray

    Andy Murray rightly makes the front pages of many of Monday's national newspapers in England and Scotland.

    The Daily Mail's front page reads 'Now it'll be arise, Sir Andy!" and their chief sports writer Martin Samuel sums up what the victory means to the people of Murray's home town Dunblane.

    "Murray has long been on a mission to alter public perceptions of his home town, Dunblane, in Scotland," writes Samuel. "He wanted it to be remembered for producing Britain's finest tennis player rather than a shooting tragedy at a school that claimed many of his young friends, and was lucky not to have taken him.

    "When Murray looks to the skies after matches, it has been speculated this is an act of remembrance and thanks. Dunblane is Murray Town now. He can never erase that history, but he has obscured it."

  179. 0735:  
    Jonathan Overend, BBC Sport tennis commentatorANDY MURRAY

    "Andy Murray's win was quite extraordinary. I think the way he served it out last night told you everything about Andy Murray - his brilliance, his determination and his will to win."


    Daniel Clements: The seeds of yesterday's win were sown reaching final in 2012 - helped him handle yesterday better. Olympic win gave him confidence also.

    Richard Wood: Congratulations to Andy Murray. Let's not forget though that his brother Jamie won a Wimbledon title recently. What a family.

    Beverly Watson: Will pressure now go on Laura Robson? We waited 77 years for a men's winner and not since '77 have we had the WOMEN'S crown!

    Cameron Smith: My family went crazy when he won. It was the best game of tennis I have ever witnessed.

    Tim Henman

    "I was privileged enough to go into the locker room straight after the match and Andy was basically in a state of shock. I just gave him a big hug when I got in there and said 'I really don't know how you did that' and he said 'nor do I'.

    BBC commentator and four-time Wimbledon semi-finalist Tim Henman joined Andy Murray in the locker room to celebrate after the match. He talks about that moment, and gives his verdict on his victory, in his article on the BBC Sport website.

  187. 0708: 

    John McEnroe backs Andy Murray to win at least six Grand Slam titles after the Scot won the Wimbledon men's singles champion on Sunday.

    Murray, 26, beat top seed Novak Djokovic to emulate the feat of Fred Perry in 1936 and secure a second major following his 2012 US Open triumph.

    "I'd be surprised if he doesn't win at least six majors," former world number one McEnroe tells BBC Sport. "He's come into his own and there's a lot to look forward to."


    Alex Smith: All the hype is the first British winner for 77 years but no one has mentioned Muzza won in straight sets, what a performance.

    William Henderson: Andy Murray and Djokavic will dominate for next 5 years. Andy will win all 4 slams and finish as world number 1 next year.

    Jordan Dunant: Watched Murray win with Pimms and a BBQ in the blistering heat! Anything better?

    "Winning Wimbledon, I can't get my head around that. I still can't believe it's happened," says the British number one. "I think that last game will be the toughest I'll play in my career."

  195. 0635: 

    Andy Murray won his first Wimbledon title and ended Britain's 77-year wait for a men's champion with a hard-fought victory over world number one Novak Djokovic.
