Britain have won their first Davis Cup since 1936 after Andy Murray saw off Belgium and David Goffin this afternoon.
The British number 1 and world number 2 beat his opponent 6-3, 7-5, 6-3 to clinch victory in the final, after Andy and his brother Jamie saw off Goffin and Darcis in the doubles yesterday, 6-4, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2.
And victory for the UK in Ghent leaves Murray clinging onto several more records.
The Scot has completed the Davis Cup year unbeaten and won 11 live rubbers. Only Ivan Ljubicic won as many back in 2005 but he lost one, too, which leaves Andy Murray arguably as the greatest Davis Cup player the game has ever seen, after becoming the first Brit since Fred Perry to get his hands on the trophy.
The animated 13,000 crowd inside the Flanders Expo did their best to support the home team, but at every turn, the British contingent, led chiefly by Murray, were just too good.
After the final ball had been served, tennis fans back home couldn’t hide their delight at the sheer magnitude of the result…
Congrats to Andy Murray by the way. One of our greatest ever sportsmen and a model professional.

Britain wins the Davis Cup for the first time in almost 80 years. Perhaps now we can give @andy_murray the credit and plaudits he deserves.

Olympics, Wimbledon, Davis Cup. There's nobody more illustrious than Andy Murray currently in British sport. GB beat Belgium 3-1.

Well done Andy Murray. Let's be honest what have the Belgians ever done for us other than great beer, Mayonnaise and Tin Tin??
