Prime Minister David Cameron's message for Andy Murray

A member of the British consulate in New York reads out a text Prime Minister David Cameron has sent to congratulate the US Open champion Andy Murray.

The embassy played hosts in celebrating the Scotsman's first Grand Slam as he defeated defending champion Novak Djokovic in the Arthur Ashe stadium on Monday.

Murray says it is yet to sink in that he has finally won his first title, as he emulated Fred Perry's 1936 achievement, who himself was Britain's last male singles' champion.
