Serena Williams struggled to describe her emotions after she won a fifth Wimbledon singles title with victory over Agnieszka Radwanska.
The 30-year-old, who missed almost a year from 2010 to 2011 with a leg injury pulmonary embolism, clinched a 6-1 5-7 6-2 win over the Pole on Centre Court.
"I can't even describe it. I almost didn't make it a few years ago," she said. "I was in hospital but now I'm here again and it was so worth it. I'm so happy.
"Aggie played so well and that's why she's had such a great career and she's so young."
Williams has now moved up to fourth in the all-time Grand Slam titles list in the Open era following her 14th overall triumph.
