London - Who's saying what after Andy Murray's win over Milos Raonic in the Wimbledon final on Sunday:

"The Prime Minister of the country is here. Playing at a Wimbledon final is tough and I certainly wouldn't want to be Prime Minister, it's a tough job."

- Murray on seeing David Cameron in the Royal Box on Centre Court

"Nice to see Andy Murray win Wimbledon..."

- Rock singer Billy Idol

"Great @andy_murray match,interview and humour. A pleasure to watch ,enjoy, this Championship. #Wimbledon2016 #legend."

- British marathon star Paula Radcliffe

"There was nobody to watch the game with me - they were all at Wimbledon but I had to stay with the dog."

- Murray's grandfather Roy on BBC

"Andyyyyyyyyyyy. Fantastic achievement ! Well deserved."

- Murray's former coach Amelie Mauresmo

"Amazing. Amazing. Amazing. @andy_murray 2 wimbledon titles."

- Brother Jamie Murray

"Congratulations to the 2016 Wimbledon Champion Andy Murray - an amazing achievement! #Wimbledon."

- Buckingham Palace on Twitter

"Andy Murray is always trying to improve. It couldn't have been easy losing the Australian Open for a fifth time this year, and then losing to the one guy who's held the weight against him for so long in Novak Djokovic at the French Open, despite having taken the first set."

- 2002 champion Lleyton Hewitt on the BBC

"Congratulations to @andy_murray . Wimbledon champion again and quite possibly the greatest British sportsman of all time."

- Former England footballer Gary Lineker on Twitter

"Obviously, the big one is always the first one and once you break that duck there's room for more. He's 29, at the peak of his career, so I'm sure he's going to be up for a few more Grand Slams."

- Three-time champion Boris Becker -- also the coach of Novak Djokovic, on BBC

"I'm sure Murray is going to win more slams, there is no question. There are a lot of good guys around but he's going to have a few good years ahead of him."

- Three-time winner Stefan Edberg
