Andy Murray will collect £1.6m in prize money for yesterday's victory, but that's a modest sum compared with the amount he could now earn now his status as a national sporting hero has been sealed.

According to his manager, Simon Fuller, Murray's victory is no less a triumph than winning the top prize in football. And he’s now admired not just as a sportsman but as a personality.

Andy Murray's manager, Simon Fuller:

The public has warmed to Andy as each year passes they understand him and they warm to him, and I think people got a little insight as to how big a heart he has and how sort of passionate he is about sport and what a truly great guy, and I think that, combined with winning on court, makes for a true superstar.

Murray's already earning £15m over five years from sportswear sponsorship and he was reckoned to be worth a total of £32m even before yesterday's victory.

If he now exploits 'brand Murray' to the full, marketing experts believe, he could earn £15m a year making him one of the highest-earning sportsmen in the world.
