The nail-biting four set thriller earned Djokovic his 21st grand slam title.
It was the first time the Serbian star has defeated the 27-year-old Australian, who exploded at the chair umpire, spectators and even his own team as he battled to stay alive in the biggest tennis match of his life.
Watching proudly as his mother presented The Gentlemen’s Singles Trophy, Prince George was all smiles. The Duchess became royal patron of the All England Lawn Tennis Club in 2016.
Later in the day after the formalities, Djokovic handed the trophy to the young tennis enthusiast. ‘It’s a bit heavy’ Prince George beamed as he handed it back to his mum.
