Unless you were at the bottom of a coal mine on Mars with earplugs in, you will know that Andy Murray won Wimbledon. He did it convincingly and is now everybody's favourite Scot.

Something which might have passed you by however is the significance of the number seven in this momentous event in British tennis.

Murray achieved his win on the seventh day of the seventh month of the year, seventy seven years after Fred Perry did so.

The last British woman to win Wimbledon, Virginia Wade, did so in nineteen seventy seven.

This was Murray's seventh grand slam final.

He has been dating his greatest fan, girlfriend Kim Sears, for seven years.

Finally, both Murray and Djokovic were born in nineteen eighty seven, seven days apart.
