Salute the conquering heroes in an amazing sporting weekend

Editor's Viewpoint

What an incredible sporting weekend with Great Britain, or should that be Scotsman Andy Murray with a little help from his brother, winning the Davis Cup for the first time since 1936 and Tyson Fury becoming heavyweight world champion.

For Murray it was a monumental achievement, cementing his status as one of Britain's greatest ever tennis players. He has now won the Davis Cup along with two Grand Slams and an Olympic title.

Fury's victory was even more astonishing as few gave him anything more than a puncher's chance of defeating Wladimir Klitscho.

But the man who boxed as an amateur from the Holy Family club in Belfast took his chance at glory to cap a career that would not be out of place in a Rocky film.
