Andy Murray won two singles matches and paired up with his brother, Jamie, for victory  in the doubles as Britain beat Belgium to claim the Davis Cup for the first time since 1936. Murray became only the third man after John McEnroe and Mats Wilander to emerge triumphant in all his eight singles matches during a Davis Cup campaign.
