Ranked number 5 in the world, the 35-year-old beat Croatian Marin Cilic 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 to become the oldest man to claim the title in the professional era.

It's the second final this weekend to be won in straight sets. On Saturday, Garbine Muguruza beat Venus Williams in the Women's Singles in similar style. Federer, in his 11th Wimbledon final, was challenged early on, but once he broke a nervous Cilic in the 5th game of the opening set, the match became a no contest.
