Andy Murray, winner of the US Open on Monday night, landed back in Britain on Wednesday morning as a grand slam winner for the first time.
The Scot, who beat Novak Djokovic in a five-set thriller at Flushing Meadows, landed back at Heathrow's Terminal 5 to be immediately met by media wanting to discuss his victory.
Murray, who was so close to winning the Wimbledon title in July, became the first British player to win a major title since Virginia Wade in 1977 and the first to win's a men's singles title since Fred Perry in 1936.
The 25-year-old will take a well-earned three-week break before heading to the Japan Open, which begins on 1 October and the Shanghai Masters the following week.
In the mean time, Murray could make use of the £100m of sponsorship money he is expected to rake in from his US Open victory.
Now being touted as a 'global ban' after winning his first major – after losing five straight finals – with the marketing power of globally-recognised stars such as Roger Federer and Cristiano Ronaldo.
