Andy Murray, a son of Dunblane, Scotland, is big news in Britain. The country is celebrating today as Murray has become the first British man to win Wimbledon in 77 years.

He told the BBC: "I will probably never top this in my career."

Eric Dodds of Time mentions "the old adage that has hounded Murray for much of his career: “A Brit when he wins and a Scot when he doesn’t.” 

The Guardian's Esther Addley writes, "Scottish, British – who cares?"

The Daily Mail was in Murray's hometown of Dunblane to record how the big match played with the hometown folks.

“I might be biased," Murray's father William Murray told the London Evening Standard, "but I truly do think that this might be the best sporting achievement by a Scottish sportsman ever."

And what about the day after? “This morning I basically just got up, went downstairs and woke the dogs up, fed them, and just sat having breakfast with the trophy downstairs,” he said, according to the London Telegraph.
