Hottest ever day at Wimbledon

Water, brollies, fans and ice-cream are the order of the day at Wimbledon, as temperatures soar to a tournament record 35.7 degrees celsius on Wednesday.

The previous hottest recorded temperature at SW19 was 34.6C on 26 June, 1976.

Wimbledon's 'heat rule' allows female players a 10-minute break between the second and third sets of matches played in extreme temperatures.
