London — Martina Hingis clinched her 23th Grand Slam title as the Swiss star and Scottish partner Jamie Murray beat Henri Kontinen and Heather Watson 6-4 6-4 in the Wimbledon mixed doubles final on Sunday.

Just hours after her compatriot Roger Federer won a record eighth Wimbledon singles crown, Hingis made it a double celebration for Switzerland on centre court.

Top seeded Hingis and Murray saw off Finland’s Kontinen and Britain’s Watson.

"It’s not bad for us!" Hingis said of a memorable day for her and Federer.

"I’m really pleased I contacted Jamie before Wimbledon. I’m really happy how we played.

"We knew before the final a British player was going to win the mixed doubles."
