Andy Murray celebrates defeating Poland's Jerzy Janowicz in the Wimbledon semi-final
Andy Murray has won his semi-final clash against Poland's Jerzy Janowicz in a controversial match which saw play stopped for the roof to be put on.
Murray, 26, held both hands aloft as he looked to the skies after being cheered to glory by a lively crowd at Centre Court.

In a tense match, the Scot lost the first set after it went to a tie-break, but rallied in the second set to take it 6-4. Despite going a break down in the third, Murray was inspired by a passionate crowd to come back and win the set 6-4.
After play was paused for around 20 minutes for the roof to be put on, Murray returned with a bang to take the fourth set 6-3.
But the semi-final match was marred by frustration from both players after Janowicz complained about the light and demanded the roof was put on - to the apparent frustration of Murray who branded the decision 'ridiculous' and unfair.
Murray in four sets
The victory means he will now bid to become the first British player to lift the men's trophy since Fred Perry in 1936, when he faces number one seed Novak Djokovic in Sunday's final.
The Serbian won his final place after a record-breaking five set win over Argentina's Juan Martin Del Potro.
IN his semi-final clash, Murray, 26, unleashed an angry tirade after referee Andrew Jarrett appeared to agree to his 22-year-old opponent's request to close the roof at 8.40pm - just after Murray had won the third set to go two sets to one up.

'It's ridiculous, it's not even dark,' Murray said. 'This is an outdoor tournament, I don't understand these rules - there's no rules.'
He added: 'This is not fair. The whole reason we are stopping is because of him.'
Fans appeared to share his views and a groan echoed round the Wimbledon grounds as play stopped.
Commentator Sue Barker branded the decision 'unbelievable'. 'I do have immense sympathy with Andy,' she added. 'I feel very, very sorry for Andy.'
Murray's girlfriend Kim Sears leaps to her feet as he wins the match
British women's number two Heather Watson expressed her frustration on Twitter. 'Very poor!! Awful decision about the roof,' she wrote.
Earlier Murray had also complained that Janowicz had been talking during a point.
The Scot received a standing ovation as he left the court following the match.

Speaking afterwards, he said he was 'delighted' with the victory.
Murray's mother Judy and girlfriend Kim Sears smiled broadly as he ousted Janowicz while cheers erupted on a packed Murray Mount.
Janowicz, 22, the first Polish man in history to reach the semi-finals of a grand slam, is known for his outbursts on court and Murray had predicted the semi-final bout would be a 'very tough match'.

Earlier the British number one arrived at the All England Club's main lawn to a roar of support from the crowd.
Actor Jude Law was among a host of famous faces who took their seats in the Royal Box to watch the action.
The Alfie star was joined by the Duke of York, boxer Amir Khan, veteran broadcaster Sir David Frost and Anna Wintour, the editor of American Vogue.
Meanwhile Pippa Middleton put in a second appearance at the All England Club with her boyfriend Nico Jackson.
The Duchess of Cambridge's sister, 29, who watched from the Royal Box on Monday with her brother James, took a seat in the crowd this afternoon to watch Murray win his place in the final.
Away from Centre Court, thousands of fans clambered on to Murray Mount to watch the match on a big screen.
