Murray beats Federer to win Olympic gold

Andy Murray produces a fantastic performance to banish the memory of defeat in the Wimbledon final and win gold for Great Britain, beating Roger Federer in straight sets.

Murray was aggressive from the start, taking the first two sets for the loss of just three games.

Federer, the world number one, was for once unable to respond and Murray won 10 games in a row on his way to a 6-2 6-1 6-4 victory in under two hours on Centre Court.

Silver went to the Swiss player, while Juan Martin del Potro took the bronze for Argentina, beating Serbia's Novak Djokovic.
