Manchester celebrates Andy Murray’s historic Wimbledon win over Novak Djokovic at Spinningfields

By Helen Le Caplain

Thousands of tennis fans flocked to Manchester’s Spinningfields to watch Andy Murray’s historic Wimbledon win yesterday – the first British man to win since Fred Perry in 1936.

Delighted spectators saw the Brit topple World No.1 Novak Djokovic in straight sets at the world-famous tennis ground in searing temperatures which nudged towards 50°C.

Eleanor Mulcaster watched the final from a gloriously sunny Manchester.

She tweeted: “Couldn’t think of a better place to be right now than @spinningfields to enjoy the tennis except Wimbledon itself! Atmosphere is amazing.”
