Sir Chris Hoy says that Andy Murray was destined to win Wimbledon.

Olympic cycling champion Sir Chris Hoy believes that Andy Murray was destined to win this year's Wimbledon title.

The six-time gold medalist watched on with Murray's mother Judy, girlfriend Kim Sears and coach Ivan Lendl in their box as the Scot claimed his first-ever Grand Slam at SW19.

"The feeling in the box was that it was destiny, that this was the time for him," Hoy told reporters.

"There was never complacency or over-confidence but you could tell they felt Andy was in the best shape of his life, physically and mentally, and today was going to be his day.

"It was a privilege to experience that. To be up in the box and to be with his crew and his family and everybody, it was one of these moments you realise actually it's history being made right in front of you."

Murray now has two Grand Slams to his name.
