Tennis fans are set to enjoy more beautiful weather at Wimbledon, after thousands watched Andy Murray claim victory in glorious sunshine.

Other acts scheduled to play to over 200,000 punters over the weekend include Robert Plant, Haim, Goldfrapp, London Grammar, Ellie Goulding, Metallica, Lana Del Ray, Ed Sheeran and country music legend Dolly Parton.
