Andy Murray wins gold at Rio 2016 Olympics

Andy Murray wins gold at Rio 2016 Olympics

Just over a month after being crowned Wimbledon Champion, Andy Murray has again made history, this time by becoming the first male tennis player to win two Olympic Single Gold Medals. He overcame Argentina’s Juan Martin Del Potro in a four-hour epic battle, winning 7-5, 4-6, 6-2, 7-5. 

Del Potro, who managed to go one better than his bronze medal from London 2012, beat Novak Djokovic in his first round, and Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals, but he came up against an in form and determined Murray. With 14 breaks of serve, the final was both physically and mentally gruelling for both players, but it was Murray who was able to add to his country’s most successful day at an overseas Olympics. 

Now as Davis Cup Champion, Sports Personality of The Year, Finalist of The Australian Open and French Open, Wimbledon Champion and Olympic Gold Medallist, Murray looks to the US Open to continue his 2016 form.
