Djokovic, who is currently ranked No.2 in the WTA rankings, secured his place in the final after he beat Jannik Sinner in the semi-final. The tennis player won the match after he was penalised by umpire Richard Haigh for causing a "hindrance" by shouting too loudly during the game.

The tennis stars played the final match of the tournament in front of a number of famous faces. Sat in the crowds at Centre Court were the likes of Ariana Grande, Brad Pitt, Emma Watson, Daniel Craig and Andy Murray.

Members of the Royal Family were also in attendance for the men’s final, with Prince William, Princess Catherine and their two eldest children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, in the royal box.

Alcaraz’s win comes after Marketa Vondrousova won the women’s Wimbledon final for the first time. The tennis ace became the first unseeded Wimbledon champion in the Open Era, making history with a 6-4 6-4 victory over Ons Jabeur.
