Britain's Heather Watson joined Andy Murray in becoming a Wimbledon champion as she won the mixed doubles title with Finland's Henri Kontinen.

Watson and Kontinen had never played together before this tournament but the new duo beat Colombia's Robert Farah and Anna-Lena Groenefeld 7-6 (7/5) 6-4 to seal their first grand slam title.

The British number two had never gone past the third round in either the singles or doubles of a grand slam before and after victory was confirmed, she skipped around Centre Court in delight.
