Andy Murray has become the first British man to win a grand slam title in 76 years after he romped home against Novak Djokovic in the US Open final.
The 25-year-old Scot lifted the trophy after a five-set thriller at New York's Flushing Meadows on Monday night.
It was his first grand slam at his fifth attempt - the same as his coach, Ivan Lendl - and Murray's win makes him the first man to win Olympic singles gold and the US Open in the same year.
He said: "It was an incredibly tough match and obviously it felt great at the end. Relief is probably the best word I would use to describe how I'm feeling just now.
"I'm very, very happy that I managed to come through because if I had lost this one from two sets up, that would have been a tough one to take.
"I was still doubting myself right up to a few minutes before going on to play the match. It's something I have never done before. I have been in this position many times and not managed to get through.
"I am just so relieved to finally have got there and I can put this one behind me and hopefully win more.
"I think just proving to myself is probably the most pleasing part about tonight, because there were times when I didn't know if I was going to be able to do it."
