The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, David and Victoria Beckham, and Hollywood stars including Samuel L Jackson and Bradley Cooper looked on as Djokovic beat Roger Federer on Centre Court.

Serbian Djokovic fell to his knees when he realised he had won his second Wimbledon title, and was in tears after he was presented with his trophy.

The 2014 Wimbledon champion, who was filmed chatting with Kate and William after his victory, told Centre Court: "I want to dedicate this win to a few people, first of all to my future wife and our future baby. I am going to become a father soon and I am still preparing for that."

Federer, 32, who was going for his eighth Wimbledon title, said after the five-set match that he had "felt the love" of the Centre Court crowd.

Adding to the star power on Centre Court were Hollywood giants Hugh Jackman, Kate Beckinsale, Orlando Bloom, Kate Winslet and Thor actor Chris Hemsworth.

But Andy Murray's mother Judy left the grounds less than an hour before the match, and when asked if she would be watching, she said: "No, I'm going shopping."
