Andy Murray's victory against Canadian Milos Raonic in the Wimbledon final dominates Scotland's front pages.

The Scotsman pictures him punching the air as he clutches the championship trophy. The newspaper also reports Angus Robertson's comments that a second independence referendum would be "on the cards" if Nicola Sturgeon's current round of Brexit talks with EU leaders fail.

"Murray reigns again" is the headline on The Herald's front page, with a picture of Murray kissing the trophy.

The Scottish Daily Mail uses the same photograph with the headline "It's all mine... again!"

The Daily Record has a special wrap-around front and back page with the headline "Greet Scot", referring to the tennis champion's tears after winning his third grand slam tournament.

The National pictures Andy Murray kissing the trophy and also mentions Gordon Reid's victory in the wheelchair men's singles under the headline "Scottish pride".

The Daily Express says a "magnificent Murray" was helped to his win by his baby girl.

"A great day to be a Brit" is the headline on the Daily Star's front page, with pictures of Andy Murray and British Grand Prix winner Lewis Hamilton.

Covering other stories, the Scotland edition of The Times reports that Theresa May has vowed to crack down on greed in big business if she becomes prime minister.

And the Press and Journal's north-east edition has a story about a "shock" £2m bill to "plug holes" in care homes.
