World number one Serena Williams beat German fourth seed Angelique Kerber to win a seventh Wimbledon and 22nd Grand Slam title.

The American, 34, coped with a gusty wind on Centre Court to win 7-5 6-3 and equal Steffi Graf’s Open era record of major titles.

Kerber had beaten Williams in the Australian Open final in January but could not produce another shock.

Williams ends a losing run at Slams stretching back to Wimbledon last year.

Later on Centre Court, Serena and sister Venus claimed their sixth Wimbledon women’s doubles title – and 14th Grand Slam trophy – with a 6-3 6-4 win over Timea Babos and Yaroslava Shvedova.
