Andy Murray beat Novak Djokovic in a dramatic three-set match on Sunday to become the first British man to win Wimbledon since Fred Perry in 1936. But as you can see in the above photo, when he finally got his hands on the trophy, the lid fell off.
Here are more photos from the final: Actors Bradley Cooper and Gerard Butler enjoyed the match, and Murray almost forgot to hug his mom when he went up into his box. The New York Times set Twitter ablaze by implying that Murray is English... Here are the front pages of some of the British papers.

Congrats are in order to Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, who got married to Rebecca Liddicoat over the weekend. There were a host of Redskins in attendance and the couple certainly look happy in these wedding photos. The icing on the cake, however, is the rap music video RGIII posted to his official Facebook page. It was shot back in March, but yes, that's RGIII rapping about candy with Becca and her older sister, Lindsey.
