Wimbledon 2012: Andy Murray beaten by Roger Federer in final

Andy Murray's bid to win Wimbledon was ended by Roger Federer as the Swiss claimed a record-equalling seventh SW19 triumph and 17th Grand Slam title.

Murray, 25, was aiming to become the first British man since Fred Perry in 1936 to lift a major singles trophy.

But 30-year-old Federer won 4-6 7-5 6-3 6-4 on Centre Court to match the mark set by Pete Sampras and reclaim the world number one ranking.

A tearful Murray has now lost all four of his Grand Slam finals.
