British tennis player, Andy Murray is the first player to ever win singles gold in consecutive Olympics.
The top-ranked Brit claimed his second gold after a four-hour encounter against Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina.
The Brit came out on top after four hours, winning 7-5, 4-6, 6-2, 7-5 at the Rio De Janeiro Olympic Games.
“Anything could have happened,” said Murray, who took the last four games after trailing 5-3 in the fourth set.
“Emotionally, it was tough. Physically, it was hard,” he said. “So many ups and downs.”
At the 2012 London Olympics, Murray won a singles gold and mixed doubles silver at the All England Club. That, of course, was also the site of his historic 2013 Wimbledon championship, ending the hosts’ 77-year wait for a British man to claim the trophy.
