Djokovic beat Nick Kyrgios to win his fourth Wimbledon title in a row and seventh overall to take his Grand Slam tally to 21 – just one shy of Rafael Nadal.

She beat Ons Jabeur to be crowned Wimbledon champion for 2022.
And both pocket £2m apiece, with All England Club chiefs awarding the same pay for the Gentlemen's and Ladies' draws since 2007.
