Britain's Joe Salisbury has lost in the men's doubles as Wimbledon history was made with the first deciding tie-break at 12-12 in the final set.

Salisbury and American partner Rajeev Ram lost 7-6 (7-2) 6-4 3-6 4-6 13-12 (7-2) to Henri Kontinen and John Peers.

The match was halted by bad light on Monday at 5-5 in the final set.

Meanwhile, Jamie Murray and Bethanie Mattek-Sands were beaten in the mixed doubles second round by third seeds Gabriela Dabrowski and Mate Pavic.

In another match stopped on Monday, the British-American pairing resumed trailing 4-3 in the final set and lost the two games played on Tuesday to fall to a 6-4 3-6 6-3 defeat.

Murray has twice won the mixed doubles title at Wimbledon and was runner-up alongside Victoria Azarenka last year.

However, British pairing Evan Hoyt and Eden Silva reached the fourth round, beating Joran Vliegen and Zheng Saisai 5-7 7-6 (7-5) 6-4.

Final-set tie-breaks have been introduced at Wimbledon this year following 2018's marathon men's singles semi-final between Kevin Anderson and John Isner which lasted six hours and 36 minutes.

The final set alone took two hours and 50 minutes, and was won 26-24 by Anderson.

Salisbury and Ram's defeat lasted four hours and 29 hours across the two days.
