Andy Murray beat Djokovic at Barclays ATP World Tour Finals to claim World No 1 spot in Tennis

Andy Murray silenced any argument about who is the best tennis player on the planet when he subdued his greatest rival on a delirious night at the O2 Arena. The 29 year-old Scot took the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals title with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over former World Number one Novak Djokovic to register his 24th straight victory that capped a late season surge.

He will now keep the world No 1 ranking for a matter of months not weeks, and becomes the seventeenth man to hold the year-end positon since the computer whirred into life in 1973. Murray produced a rock solid performance to take advantage of an occasionally wayward Djokovic who, despite a late rally, sometimes seemed to be hosting the demons that have affected him since the French Open.
