Andy Murray will finish 2016 on top of the world rankings after an imperious 6-3, 6-4 victory over Novak Djokovic clinched his first ATP Tour Finals title on Sunday.
Murray had ended Djokovic’s 122-week reign as world number one two weeks ago and his triumph in their winner-takes-all clash at London’s O2 Arena stopped the Serb regaining pole position.
The 29-year-old is the 17th man to hold the prestigious year-end number one berth since the inception of the ATP rankings in 1973.
Here are the best tweets reacting to Murray’s achievement.
