Hello and welcome to our final Wimbledon Sportsday -

:00:20.:00:21.

And there's a fairytale ending for Roger Federer as he seals

:00:22.:00:25.

a record 8th men's singles crown at the All England Club.

:00:26.:00:32.

There's a slice of British success in the ladies wheelchair

:00:33.:00:34.

and the mixed doubles as Jamie Murray and his partner

:00:35.:00:36.

There's more British success at Silverstone

:00:37.:01:34.

In today's men's final, Roger Federer gave to his fitting end. His

:01:35.:01:44.

straight sets wind over Marin Cilic was not exactly what we were

:01:45.:01:47.

expecting. In Centre Court history, one man has

:01:48.:01:51.

his own chapter. Play Roger Federer here and you face the thousands who

:01:52.:01:56.

adore him. Going for a record eight Wimbledon title on this court, there

:01:57.:02:01.

are two kinds of royalty. At 35, still he is at his peak. Two month

:02:02.:02:06.

break earlier this year has kept in swift on his feet, with a racket

:02:07.:02:12.

there is the same artistry. In the tension of the opening exchanges,

:02:13.:02:14.

Federer has the power to break through.

:02:15.:02:21.

He ripped it across court. It was tough to take for Marin Cilic. One

:02:22.:02:25.

set down, already feeling the strain. He is having a horror,

:02:26.:02:33.

fallen apart a bit. In his first Wimbledon final, it became too much

:02:34.:02:37.

to bear. With the weight of expectation back home, Marin Cilic

:02:38.:02:42.

was facing a torrent. You want the ground to open up and swallow you in

:02:43.:02:46.

situations like this. The great champions have now time for

:02:47.:02:49.

sympathy, Federer ruthless to the second set. Marin Cilic put up more

:02:50.:02:55.

of a fight in the third, but already this looked inevitable. 18 Grand

:02:56.:03:00.

Slams later, the Swiss has the same thirst for success. The championship

:03:01.:03:09.

title field without dropping a set. The first man to wind each

:03:10.:03:15.

Championships. It was no time to show emotion. Wimbledon's

:03:16.:03:20.

record-breaker and, unquestionably, King of this court. An eighth title

:03:21.:03:26.

for Federer means as much as the first. Better than holding the

:03:27.:03:29.

trophy and winning today, I guess, is just being healthy. It feels

:03:30.:03:34.

great and it's means the world to me, we worked hard last year, so to

:03:35.:03:40.

be back here, I am just feeling great, holding the trophy, the

:03:41.:03:44.

tournament that I please, not dropping a set, it is magical, I

:03:45.:03:51.

cannot believe it, really, yet. Eight Wimbledon title, the only man

:03:52.:03:54.

in the history of Wimbledon to ever wind it eight times. I guess it is

:03:55.:04:02.

disbelief that I can achieve such heights. I was not sure if I was

:04:03.:04:08.

ever going to be here again in another final after last year. I

:04:09.:04:14.

have had some tough frontier, losing to Novak Djokovic in 2014 and 2015,

:04:15.:04:19.

but I always believed that I would maybe come back and do it again and

:04:20.:04:22.

if you believe you can go really far in your life, and I did that and I

:04:23.:04:26.

really happy. I kept on believing and dreaming and here and today, it

:04:27.:04:30.

is fantastic. It is never easy playing with an

:04:31.:04:34.

injury, but you bravely battled on. Yes, that is what I did throughout

:04:35.:04:39.

all of my career, never gave up when I started a match. That was my idea

:04:40.:04:44.

also today, I give my best and that was all I could do.

:04:45.:04:49.

I concede that it is obviously very washed all for you, but I can see

:04:50.:04:53.

that you have had a wonderful tournament and you can be so proud

:04:54.:04:57.

of that. Yes, I have had an amazing journey, played the best tennis of

:04:58.:05:00.

my life and they really want to thank my team. They gave so much

:05:01.:05:07.

strength to me. And, of course, to all of my fans in Croatia, it was

:05:08.:05:13.

really tough today and I gave it all and I am hoping definitely that I am

:05:14.:05:17.

going to come back here and try it one more time.

:05:18.:05:21.

Sad moments for Marin Cilic, but Roger Federer makes history were

:05:22.:05:26.

sent -- with a 19th Grand Slam title. His place in the history

:05:27.:05:32.

books is definitely assured. This is what Boris Becker had to say about

:05:33.:05:38.

Federer's achievements. We have seen history in the making, no man has

:05:39.:05:44.

won a championship here to before. There were only three men who had

:05:45.:05:51.

seven. For him to achieve each today, that is something that we

:05:52.:05:55.

tell our grandchildren, we were there -- to achieve each titles.

:05:56.:06:02.

Last year, he walked off limping, he had any problem, in the semifinal

:06:03.:06:13.

losing. He probably did not think that he would come back. He

:06:14.:06:17.

rescheduled all of this year, he won the Austrian open, the first major

:06:18.:06:22.

of the year, and all of a sudden, Federer is back. If you compare him

:06:23.:06:24.

to any other athlete of the world, he is right up there. If you think

:06:25.:06:30.

of Formula 1, running, basketball, football, there is nobody like Roger

:06:31.:06:34.

Federer at the moment. I do not know if you can get better, but he can

:06:35.:06:38.

continue winning. I'm sure he will take some weeks off, but then which

:06:39.:06:41.

tournament to pick, the way that he is playing at the moment, there are

:06:42.:06:46.

more Grand Slams in the making. I am amazed, it is incredible, when

:06:47.:06:53.

you reflect on the next 12 months, losing last year with a bad knee,

:06:54.:06:57.

questioning whether he would reach the heights again. When he took six

:06:58.:07:03.

months on, you're questioning whether he would recover and

:07:04.:07:05.

potentially get back to the heights he had reached before. To do that in

:07:06.:07:10.

a short period of time, winning in Australia and Indian Wells and Miami

:07:11.:07:15.

was lovable start to the year. Then his decision to take the clay-court

:07:16.:07:18.

season off, there were definitely a few people questioning the wisdom of

:07:19.:07:22.

that, but getting back on a grass court to win and then when his eight

:07:23.:07:29.

Wimbledon title without dropping a set has been incredible to watch.

:07:30.:07:41.

He doesn't move so which is understandable, but you have to be

:07:42.:07:46.

more aggressive and make your opponent to the running. That is

:07:47.:07:48.

what he is prepared to do, still hitting his spots brilliantly on his

:07:49.:07:52.

serve and then when his forehand comes into play, I don't think

:07:53.:07:55.

there's a better shot in the game. When you look at his

:07:56.:07:58.

accomplishments, certainly in an individual sport, in a global game,

:07:59.:08:02.

you look at the numbers, I guess Jack Nicklaus Ingolstadt 18 majors

:08:03.:08:08.

and Federer now 19, it is tough to think of other athletes that have

:08:09.:08:10.

transcended their sport as much as he has.

:08:11.:08:13.

He does not over exert himself with his technique, he's incredibly

:08:14.:08:23.

smooth, and he's incredibly super competitor as well. He's got a

:08:24.:08:26.

number of things that can work amazingly well. Breaking records as

:08:27.:08:37.

a by-product of that. He knows his serve is going to hold up. He knows

:08:38.:08:40.

he will be able to get enough returns back. He knows he is quick

:08:41.:08:43.

off the mark. He is lightning, superfast. He is able to do that

:08:44.:08:51.

year in, year out. That is the longevity of his career, it is quite

:08:52.:08:55.

phenomenal. I joked before, saying Federer will be winning matches at

:08:56.:08:59.

Wimbledon when years 42. I'm not sure it is such a joke any more but

:09:00.:09:05.

he's incredibly light on his feet, just the way he plays enables, it

:09:06.:09:12.

puts pressure on the opponent very quickly and he's a master at getting

:09:13.:09:14.

through the first of tournaments quickly. His style of play, a bit

:09:15.:09:20.

like other champions that we have seen, Nadal as well, they bring

:09:21.:09:26.

something new, different to the game that the regular player can't

:09:27.:09:27.

handle. Now after Roger Federer's Wimbledon

:09:28.:09:28.

win today, the Centre-Court crowd were also able to enjoy some British

:09:29.:09:33.

success on the final afternoon. after Jamie Murray and the former

:09:34.:09:36.

Wimbledon singles winner from Switzerland -

:09:37.:09:39.

Martina Hingis - beat the defending champions -

:09:40.:09:41.

Britain's Heather Watson and Finland's Henri Kontinen

:09:42.:09:44.

in straight sets. I guess the crowd was a bit split

:09:45.:09:57.

but look, I mean, it was a great success for British tennis, to have

:09:58.:10:00.

two guys in the final, for us, we had a great week, we had a lot of

:10:01.:10:04.

amazing tennis, especially in a final, we knew we would have to play

:10:05.:10:08.

a really good match if we wanted another chance to win and we managed

:10:09.:10:10.

to do that. More home success away from

:10:11.:10:14.

Wimbledon. Lewis Hamilton has won

:10:15.:10:15.

the British Grand Prix The historic victory

:10:16.:10:19.

moves him to within a point of Sebastien Vettel at the halfway

:10:20.:10:24.

stage of the F1 season - after the Championship Leader

:10:25.:10:27.

suffered a dramatic late puncture. Silverstone 50 years ago,

:10:28.:10:31.

a Scotsman won the British Grand Prix for a fifth

:10:32.:10:39.

time in a Ltus Ford. Jim Clark, surrounded

:10:40.:10:41.

by wonder and flowers. Now anyone who comes

:10:42.:10:43.

here can experience every But only one could really

:10:44.:10:45.

feel how Clark felt. Lewis Hamilton started with the same

:10:46.:10:51.

view, everyone behind him, Sebastian Vettel, the leader

:10:52.:10:54.

in the standings, had been caught, but charged back at Verstappen

:10:55.:11:10.

full of adrenaline. Sebastian Vettel eventually

:11:11.:11:12.

passed him, but Hamilton The only question was

:11:13.:11:17.

whether he could get in and out No one would get near him,

:11:18.:11:21.

but his position would improve. Kimi Raikkonen was beaten

:11:22.:11:27.

to second by Bottas, and Vettel's championship lead

:11:28.:11:41.

was about to deflate. Lewis Hamilton could hardly

:11:42.:11:43.

have had a better day. So proud to see these flags

:11:44.:11:47.

everywhere, and the supporters I'm proud I could do

:11:48.:11:53.

this for you all. Thank you for the support

:11:54.:11:56.

pushing us, the team These fans have just seen history,

:11:57.:11:58.

Hamilton's fifth British Grand Prix win, his fourth in a row,

:11:59.:12:08.

and what's more the title Only one point stands

:12:09.:12:11.

between Hamilton and Vettel. Not so close in the cricket at the

:12:12.:12:14.

moment. South Africa are dominating

:12:15.:12:21.

the second Test against England and are on course to level

:12:22.:12:23.

the series at Trent Bridge. As Adam Wild reports, this has been

:12:24.:12:31.

a stark contrast to Joe Root's debut as England's captain.

:12:32.:12:32.

For England's captain this was a first real test of strength.

:12:33.:12:34.

Joe Root, new to the job, his team in trouble and now was the moment

:12:35.:12:38.

South Africa already with a frustrating lead, all the more

:12:39.:12:45.

Amla should have been given out but England

:12:46.:12:50.

choose not to review it

:12:51.:12:52.

With one lusty blow, Amla past is 50.

:12:53.:12:56.

It was time for the skipper to step up and step in.

:12:57.:12:59.

Whatever he said to Ben Stokes, it works.

:13:00.:13:01.

Root was the first to congratulate his bowler.

:13:02.:13:07.

And as all captains know, one wicket often brings two.

:13:08.:13:10.

England still struggling, but at least something to cheer.

:13:11.:13:12.

For Joe Root and England, this was getting tough to watch.

:13:13.:13:21.

Rather less so for the South African fans. Their lead way beyond 400 now

:13:22.:13:28.

as England's bowlers were again sent way beyond the boundary. A difficult

:13:29.:13:31.

day in a field finally brought to an end with Moeen's fourth wicket but

:13:32.:13:35.

they would now need a record-breaking performance with the

:13:36.:13:39.

bat to win this. Alastair Cook knows a thing or two about captaincy but

:13:40.:13:44.

he was given out first ball and chose to review it. It was the right

:13:45.:13:48.

decision. He survives for tomorrow but a difficult task for the current

:13:49.:13:53.

captain has become almost impossible. Adam Wild, BBC News.

:13:54.:13:58.

England with a mountain to climb, still needing another 473 to win

:13:59.:14:04.

with all of their second innings wickets in hand. South Africa,

:14:05.:14:11.

weather permitting, have a full two day to take the wickets they need to

:14:12.:14:12.

level the series. Britain's defending champion

:14:13.:14:13.

Chris Froome overcame mechanical issues to retain his 18-second

:14:14.:14:15.

lead after Stage 15 of Despite a dramatic afternoon

:14:16.:14:17.

for an irritated Froome, where he had to change a wheel,

:14:18.:14:21.

and deal with the hostile, booing home fans -

:14:22.:14:24.

he recovered brilliantly. But the Briton was nowhere

:14:25.:14:26.

near today's 189.5km stage winner, Bauke Mollema, who took his first

:14:27.:14:28.

ever victory in the race. More importantly for Froome,

:14:29.:14:37.

he retained the yellow jersey and continues to lead Italy's Fabio

:14:38.:14:39.

Aru. Aled Davies won his third

:14:40.:14:41.

world title in the discus and Britain's seventh gold medal

:14:42.:14:46.

of the World Para-athletics Let's take you to the London Stadium

:14:47.:14:52.

and our sports news correspondent A good gold medal haul so far for

:14:53.:15:07.

Great Britain? That's right, after last night's gold rush, yet more

:15:08.:15:11.

success for the British team this morning, courtesy of one of these

:15:12.:15:15.

styles of London 2012 in the stadium behind me, Aled Davies in the

:15:16.:15:23.

discus. 51.54 metres, the winning distance, his third world title in

:15:24.:15:28.

the discus and he could yet add a second gold medal later at these

:15:29.:15:32.

championships because next weekend is the shot put. That is the event

:15:33.:15:36.

where Davies is the Paralympic champion. It could be the first of

:15:37.:15:43.

two world titles in London for him. Afterwards, not surprisingly, he

:15:44.:15:45.

said he was delighted with this morning's performance.

:15:46.:15:49.

work so hard. I know what I'm capable of doing. I'm going in

:15:50.:15:58.

there, like, I have been 353, 54, 55 all year but with the crowd, I might

:15:59.:16:03.

do 55 or 56, we thought, who knows? But you keep forgetting that

:16:04.:16:06.

championship performance is a different kettle of fish and I'm

:16:07.:16:10.

just glad I've got the W and we can focus on the shot but now because I

:16:11.:16:13.

know I've got a special performance in the tank.

:16:14.:16:15.

Plenty to look forward to this evening as well? That's right, as

:16:16.:16:22.

far as the British bands are concerned, no doubting the style of

:16:23.:16:27.

the show tonight because the final of the men's T 44 100 metres, which

:16:28.:16:34.

means Jonnie Peacock, the poster boy of London 2012, won Gold five years

:16:35.:16:39.

ago, also won gold at the Rio Paralympics but he did miss the last

:16:40.:16:43.

World Championships two years ago with injury. He does have something

:16:44.:16:48.

to prove. His biggest rival, Richard Browne of the USA, the world record

:16:49.:16:53.

holder, is not here but even so, plenty of competition for Jonnie

:16:54.:16:57.

Peacock, especially Jarryd Wallace of the USA but we have to say,

:16:58.:17:01.

Peacock looked very impressive in his heat about half an hour ago,

:17:02.:17:06.

winning it convincingly, easing through in the end. The final is

:17:07.:17:10.

just before 9pm and certainly, Jonnie Peacock will begin as red-hot

:17:11.:17:12.

favourite for another gold medal. Andy Swiss at the London Stadium,

:17:13.:17:21.

thank you for joining us. Great Britain have topped the medal table

:17:22.:17:25.

after a highly successful para canoe European Championships in Bulgaria.

:17:26.:17:28.

There was final day success over the 200 meter distance with silver

:17:29.:17:31.

medals for Ian Marsden and Rob Oliver and a bronze for Nick

:17:32.:17:35.

Beighton. British Olympic champion Liam Heath has defended his K-1 200

:17:36.:17:40.

metre title, the gold medallist from the Rio Olympics will be hoping to

:17:41.:17:42.

add the world title to his collection in the Czech Republic

:17:43.:17:48.

next month. There's a dramatic finish at the Scottish Open in

:17:49.:17:51.

Dundonald where a play-off is currently underway. World number

:17:52.:17:56.

405, Callum Shinkwin, was on course for the biggest win of his career

:17:57.:18:01.

but on the 18th green, with a 1-shot lead over Spain's Rafa

:18:02.:18:04.

Cabrera-Bello, his final putt for victory came up short. It was his

:18:05.:18:08.

first drop shot of the round, reducing him to 13 under par. Early

:18:09.:18:14.

in the day, Cabrera-Bello had carded a fantastic final round 64,

:18:15.:18:18.

including eight birdies. Both will feature in next week's Open at Royal

:18:19.:18:22.

Birkdale but one man missing out for the first time in 14 years is 2010

:18:23.:18:27.

US Open champion Graeme McDowell who finished inside the top 20 but that

:18:28.:18:31.

won't be enough for the world number 102.

:18:32.:18:35.

England have beaten Ireland 3-2 at the women's oche world league

:18:36.:18:40.

semifinals. The victory means they finished top of the pool going into

:18:41.:18:45.

Tuesday's quarterfinal. Danny Kerry's side went 2-0 up in

:18:46.:18:49.

Johannesburg through Sarah Haycroft and Shona McCallin but two goals in

:18:50.:18:53.

two minutes for Ireland at the start of the third quarter levelled the

:18:54.:18:57.

scores. Ten minutes later, Captain Alex Danson fired in a rebound to

:18:58.:19:01.

seal England's victory. The top four teams in the tournament go through

:19:02.:19:04.

to the world league finals in New Zealand in November.

:19:05.:19:10.

No medal success for Great Britain at the World Aquatics

:19:11.:19:12.

Championships today in Bupadest, but there were a couple

:19:13.:19:14.

Ross Haslam and James Heatly made their senior World Championships

:19:15.:19:19.

Haslam finished in tenth while Heatly scored

:19:20.:19:26.

I didn't even think I was going to make the team at the beginning of

:19:27.:19:31.

the season, let alone make the team and the final. I'm really happy and

:19:32.:19:34.

I've got a PB in the prelim and I beat that again this time saw over

:19:35.:19:38.

the moon. Probably one of the biggest ages venues I've ever

:19:39.:19:41.

competed at so. This, that is a check in the box. I'm happy with it.

:19:42.:19:47.

I could have dived a bit better but to dive in such a high standard

:19:48.:19:49.

event and hold my own, I'm really pleased.

:19:50.:19:51.

We're going to return to matters here at the All England Club now

:19:52.:19:55.

and the home crowd had early reason to celebrate today with more success

:19:56.:19:58.

Fresh from Alfie Hewett and Gordon Reid's victory yesterday,

:19:59.:20:01.

Jordanne Whiley and her Japanese partner Yui Kamiji have

:20:02.:20:03.

won their fourth successive women's doubles title.

:20:04.:20:06.

They came from a set down to beat the second seeds Marjolein Buis

:20:07.:20:13.

It's the pair's fourth straight Wimbledon title,

:20:14.:20:17.

and it now means that Whiley has ten Grand Slam titles to her name.

:20:18.:20:20.

This is by far the most special to me because I've been out for eight

:20:21.:20:26.

months, struggling with injury, I have not played with you for a year

:20:27.:20:30.

now and I really tried my hardest and they are such a strong team. I'm

:20:31.:20:33.

so happy! So yet another Grand Slam title

:20:34.:20:34.

for Jordanne Whiley. Ten in total, equalling the number

:20:35.:20:36.

won by Britain's most decorated wheelchair tennis

:20:37.:20:40.

player, Pete Norfolk. He's been speaking to

:20:41.:20:41.

Gemma-Louise Stevenson. You know, when we started watching

:20:42.:20:50.

the match, and I have watched her this week, she has had quite a long

:20:51.:20:56.

time off with injuries and I did not think she was going to do it, I'll

:20:57.:21:00.

be honest. I was a bit pessimistic, I did not think she had the match

:21:01.:21:03.

fitness but I think what happened was a bit of a transition in the

:21:04.:21:08.

match, the Dutch pair started pummelling Jordanne with shots and

:21:09.:21:12.

she basically got into the groove and started slicing her back and and

:21:13.:21:18.

by the time the third set came around, with Yui Kamiji behind her,

:21:19.:21:21.

it was unbelievable. What really gives Jordanne the platform to play

:21:22.:21:30.

if her partner, she is so consistent, so committed, 100%. Her

:21:31.:21:38.

defence was marvellous. And she has beaten your grand slam achievements,

:21:39.:21:42.

how do you feel about that. I don't mind at all, I did not realise it

they are so young, Gordon, Alfie, jaw Dan Bunn I started playing when

:21:52.:21:58.

I was 30, for goodness sakes. Go mad when you're Buddhist, versus what

:21:59.:22:02.

you witnessed today with the crowds and everything, all the matches, how

:22:03.:22:08.

different is it right now? Well, we, I was playing at grand slams and

:22:09.:22:11.

progressively, they have moved the courts up. It depends on scheduling,

:22:12.:22:15.

actually, as to what the crowds are like. I mean, I played at the US

:22:16.:22:20.

Open when my courts have been rammed with thousands of people and then we

:22:21.:22:23.

played on bigger courts with not much but that is not because of the

:22:24.:22:27.

crowd not wanting to be there, it is like today, Federer is going for

:22:28.:22:32.

potentially history, so it's not surprising. But like Gordon said

:22:33.:22:36.

yesterday, what would be fantastic would be to be on the main

:22:37.:22:40.

grandstand courts at all the grand slams. We have got the talent and

the speed and power and the determination. Let's get it out
