Veteran Spanish tennis star Feliciano López, 37, became the first wild card since Pete Sampras (in 1999) to win the singles title at the Fever-Tree Championships at Queen's in London on Sunday.

López beat fellow veteran Gilles Simon 6-2 6-7 (4-7) 7-6 (7-2) after almost five hours on court.

López then returned alongside Andy Murray later the same day to clinch the doubles title too.
