Serbian Novak Djokovic has clinched his third major Grand Slam title this year.

The world's number one beat Italian Matteo Berrettini at Wimbledon on Sunday to claim the men's single championship.

Although Berrettini managed to win the first set, the 20-time Grand Slam winner won the next three sets.

This was the sixth Wimbledon title for Djokovic, which means he has matched Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer with 20 major titles each.

Besides Wimbledon, Djokovic has won the first two Grand Slams of the year already, the Australian Open and the French Open. If he manages to win the US Open next month, he will set a new record as the only male player to have won all four major Grand Slams in one season.

Meanwhile, Australian Ashleigh Barty made her country proud by becoming the first Australian to win the women's single title since 1980 when Evonne Goolagong Cawley won her first Wimbledon title.

The world's number one beat the Czech, Karolina Pliskova, in three sets on Saturday.

This year’s tournament was supported in full as sold-out crowds watched in awe when various top seed ranking players like Roger Federer and Serena Williams were knocked out in the early rounds.

Celebrities including Tom Cruise, David Beckham and Benedict Cumberbatch as well as the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, who handed over the trophies, were in attendance.
