The British champion was joined by his girlfriend of eight years, emerging style icon Kim Sears.

Andy Murray last night celebrated his historic Wimbledon win by partying into the night at the Wimbledon Ball, alongside his long-term girlfriend Kim Sears. Although the couple have been together for seven years, and Kim is his number one supporter - cheering him on from the stands at every tennis match, the tennis champion has revealed he won't be proposing anytime soon.

When asked if he would be marking the victory with a wedding, Murray replied: "No… I haven’t thought about that yet."

And while her other half was named the first British male Wimbledon winner since 1936, Kim appropriately relied on British fashion to see him through the final.

The stylish 25-year-old stunned in a mint green lace dress by Victoria Beckham, sold for €1,100, as she energetically cheered on Murray from the Players Box, as usual.

Last night, the high profile couple attended the Wimbledon Championships Dinner at the InterContinental Park Lane Hotel in London, where they were joined by Andy's mother Judy Murray.

"Winning Wimbledon is the pinnacle of tennis," a humble Murray said after his victory.

"The last game almost increased that feeling. My head was kind of everywhere. I mean, some of the shots he came up with were unbelievable. Mentally, that last game will be the toughest game I'll play in my career."
