Hours after lifting his fourth Wimbledon title on Centre Court, Novak Djokovic swapped his match attire for his finest tuxedo as he attended the annual Champions Dinner with women's champion Angelique Kerber.

Taking place at the Guildhall in London, the black tie event marks the end of the fortnight of action at SW19.

It proved a far more straightforward day for the Serb than he might have expected. A 6-2, 6-2, 7-6 win over South African Kevin Anderson ensured he had plenty of time to freshen up before the evening gala.

The German's success in London means she added to her other two Grand Slam titles - the Australian Open and US Open, both in 2016.

Wimbledon has been the high point of the year for both players after disappointing showings at both the Australian Open in January and the more recent French Open.  

Kerber, now world No 4, will hope her rare success in winning a Slam can help propel her up the rankings as she looks to return to her former No 1 spot.

For Djokovic, injury plagued him in recent years and Wimbledon has been the first time he has looked back to his best after taking advantage of high profile casualties before a spectacular semi-final win over Rafael Nadal.

But victory over Anderson sees Djokovic restored to the top 10 in the rankings and he will continue to look up ahead of the US Open in September.
