Whilst there have been great celebrations as Scotland’s Andy Murray won Wimbledon, his Serbian opponent Novak Djokovic showed great humility in defeat. Having known each other since they were 12 years old, he acknowledged that he was better on the day. Earlier in the year Djokovic had been in Scotland and passed Andy Murray’s hometown of Dunblane.

“I was passing by Dunblane and I took a picture of the road sign and sent him the photo. He said: ‘What are you doing there?’ I said: ‘I was paying you a visit but you’re not at home.’ He went on – “I like Scotland, it was a little surprise for my girlfriend because Scotland and Britain is full of beautiful medieval castles and we are in love with that, we love that fairytale, romantic, medieval sights.  I took her there for her birthday. I got a very friendly welcome”.
