Everyone may be talking about Andy Murray at Wimbledon - but there's already a British men's singles champion.

Gordon Reid has just made Wimbledon history by winning the first ever men's wheelchair singles competition.

There's not been a wheelchair singles category until this year.

The 24-year-old beat Sweden's Stefan Olsson in straight sets in Sunday's final.

Here's a bit more about Britain's newest Wimbledon champ...

Gordon comes from Scotland and started playing tennis when he was six, with his two brothers and sister. He was a good junior player.

When he was 13, he got a condition that meant he couldn't use his legs any more. He took up wheelchair tennis the following year.

This isn't his first Grand Slam win

He won the wheelchair singles title in the Australian Open earlier this year, where he made friends with Andy and Jamie Murray in the locker rooms.

He's already won the men's wheelchair doubles competition this year with his partner Alfie Hewett. They were the first Brits to win the title.

He's a Paralympic hopeful

Gordon reached the quarter-finals in the singles in London 2012 Paralympics, and also got to the quarter-finals in the doubles.

He's now looking ahead to Rio after qualifying for the Paralympics in Brazil in September.

When Wimbledon kicked off, he told the BBC: "I said at the start of the week I wanted to achieve two things.

"First if there were any kids with disabilities for this to inspire them to take up the sport.

"And second was to continue to break down the barriers when it comes to disability sport, to showcase the talent in the sport."
