Andy Murray beat Novak Djokovic in straight sets at Wimbledon to progress to the final of the Olympic tennis tournament on Friday.

The Wimbledon finalist, who is now guaranteed a silver medal, beat the Serbian world number 2 in two hours, 7-5 7-5.

Murray beat Djokovic in two sets

The victory proved a sweet moment for the Scot, who appears to have brought his Wimbledon form into the Olympics. Having laboured to get to a final at Wimbledon all his career, he now has two in the space of a month.

Murray was cheered on at SW19 by Prince William and Kate. After the game, the 25-year-old admitted that the Olympics had been "the most fun I've had at any tournament".

Murray will now play Roger Federer on centre court on Sunday, after the Swiss defeated Juan Martin del Potro after an epic four hour match, that finished 3-6 7-6 19-17.

Feeding off the energy of an All England Club crowd buoyed by constant updates from the velodrome, Murray produced a supreme display of shot making, giving Djokovic barely anything to work with. Having won the first set, he resisted a Serbian onslaught, and clinched victory with his opponent serving to stay in the match.

Having secured his place in the final, the Scot cut a very different figure from the tearful runner-up at Wimbledon last month, jumping around centre court, punching his fist.

Murray stood firm against breaks points in the first two games of the second set, and saved another break point in the ninth game, but the Serb could not break down Murray's dogged defence.

Serving to stay in the set, Djokavic quickly found himself up against three match points. Murray stepped in on a backhand and the game was won.
