World number two Andy Murray on Sunday produced a scintillating performance as he defeated Canada's Milos Raonic in straight sets to clinch his second Wimbledon's title.

Murray defeated the sixth seeded Canadian player 6-4, 7-6(3), 7-6(2) in the summit showdown to repeat his triumph of 2013 and claim a third Grand Slam title.

Jubilant with the victory, the 29-year-old player gave a tearful speech wherein he said that Wimbledon was the most important tournament for him.

"The most important tournament for me every year. I've had some great moments here and some tough losses. I'm glad to get my hands on the trophy again," he said in the post match interview.

"I played really good stuff but Milos has had a great few weeks on the grass and had some unbelievable wins. His match against Roger in the semis was a great match and he is one of the harder workers out there. Each time we've played each other, he's made big movements," he added.

With the victory, Murray has become the first Briton to win multiple Wimbledon singles titles since Fred Perry in 1935.
