Heads up: Top comment and controversy

Andy Murray beats Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon 2013 final: the reaction

It's been a long 77 year wait since a Brit was crowned men's champion at Wimbledon, but Andy Murray has finally taken the title in the 2013 final against Novak Djokovic.

Murray is the first British man to win Wimbledon since Fred Perry in 1936, and said it was "an unbelievably tough match".

The tension was palpable in the audience, (with piping temperatures on court of up to 50C) as the Scot defeated the world No.1 after three hours and 10 minutes.

So what's the reaction like on Twitter? Let's take a look...

@clarebalding Wow. Standing in tears with all the folks from RDACarlisle. Well done Andy Murray! What a champ.

@Charles_HRH Andy Murray has finally won the thing he's been dreaming of his whole life: British Citizenship. #wimbledonfinal

@WelshIrvine I am in f*cking tears

@stefanohat How classy is DjokerNole in defeat ! murray v djokovic #wimbledonfinal

@TheTweetOfGod You're welcome, Britain.

@Joey7Barton Thats Henman gone now. Never to be heard of or seen again. Thankfully...

@daraobriain A win for Murray, Dan Martin wins today's Tdf stage and Dublin on the cusp of a Leinster final win. A fine Sunday.

@HarrietHarman Hooray for Murray !!!!

@davidschneider For me, the truly impressive thing about Murray's performance is that he managed to go over 3 hours without checking Twitter #wimbledonfinal

@Queen_UK Take a day off tomorrow, people. In fact, take the sodding week off. #murray #wimbledon #finally

@andy_murray Can't believe what's just happened!!!!!!

...and already 300 retweets and some angry replies to this corker from The New York Times:
