Andy Murray last week became the first British man to win Wimbledon in 77 years, and his feat will be forever commemorated with a series of stamps.

“We are thrilled for Andy and are delighted to mark his wonderful achievement by issuing a set of special stamps," Andrew Hammond, managing director of stamps and collectibles at Royal Mail, said. "His historic win at Wimbledon has made the nation proud, and we can now celebrate his success with this new stamp issue."

Murray, who was also honored with stamps after his gold-medal win at the 2012 Olympics, beat Novak Djokovic in straight sets to win his second career Grand Slam title.

Before Murray, Fred Perry was the most recent Briton to win Wimbledon, in 1936.
