Roof closed at Wimbledon
The crowds are led in on the final day of this year's Wimbledon
Wimbledon's Centre Court roof was closed on Sunday morning ahead of Andy Murray's men's final against Roger Federer.
Heavy rain on Saturday night in London was followed by drizzle on Sunday morning, and further showers were forecast for the afternoon.
Queues began to build on Friday and All England Club (AELTC) officials warned it would be hours before those towards the back would be able to enter the grounds. They advised those making late plans to attend to stay away.
A message on the official Wimbledon Twitter page, sent before the gates opened at 10.30am, said: "AELTC strongly advise people intending to queue, not to travel to Wimbledon."
The final is due to start at 2pm, with Murray bidding to become the first British man since Fred Perry in 1936 to land the men's singles trophy and Federer attempting to earn a record-equalling seventh title.

Proud to be British, Embarrassed to be English
A B. I feel the same re. supporting any team who plays against England at footie. Only because we have had to endure through th EBC and other media, the incessant bias towards England. Never a mention of when Scotland took the p*** in 1967!
I have lived/worked in England AND Wales and have NEVER heard anyone of EITHER country say a bad word re Scotland or it`s people!
BTW Carole. WHO paid for his training?
