Press Association logoPress Association 5/11/2016

Great Britain's Andy Murray has reached the top of tennis' world rankings for the first time.

The Scot needed to make the final of the Paris Masters in order to topple Novak Djokovic as the world No.1 and was due to face Milos Raonic on Saturday afternoon.

But his job was done for him as the Canadian withdrew from their clash with injury, giving the Wimbledon champion a walkover.
