Rafael Nadal has won the Wimbledon title for a second time, beating Thomas Berdych of the Czech Republic in the final. It is his second successive Grand Slam victory, after he won the French Open last month.

Listen to the story

Just as he did when he claimed his first Wimbledon title in 2008, Rafael Nadal fell to the floor to celebrate winning his eighth Grand Slam.

After missing out on the chance to defend his crown last year because of a knee injury, this victory will mean everything to the Spaniard.

He was back on the biggest stage in tennis and he never looked like losing. The world number one won the first set 6-3 in just 34 minutes. And although Thomas Berdych had chances in the second set -wasting four break points- Nadal upped his game just at the right time to take it 7-5.

Then with his Czech opponent serving to stay in the match he struck again, taking his first Championship point with yet another powerful winner. So Nadal is Wimbledon champion for the second time. And on this evidence he may well be the man to beat here for years to come.
