Britain's Alfie Hewett and Gordon Reid came from behind to capture their fifth men's wheelchair doubles title at the Wimbledon Championships in London.

Playing in front of a patriotic crowd on Court One, the two-time Paralympic silver medallists recovered from a set down to beat Japan's Takuya Miki and Tokito Oda in a gripping final.

After dropping the first set, top seeds Hewett and Reid reacted in superb fashion by taking the next without losing a game before completing a 3-6, 6-0, 6-3 triumph.

The victory is their fifth as a pairing at Wimbledon after succeeding in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2021 and 2023 and their 18th Grand Slam doubles title together.

"If you told me we'd be on Court One with a nearly full stadium, with a crowd going berserk, I'd have never have believed it," said Reid in a report by the BBC.

"My first Wimbledon was in 2008 out on court 53 or something, in front of three men, a dog and my mum and my sister.

"Me and Alfie were both saying there when we were waiting to pick the trophy up, at match point we were both tearing up.

"The atmosphere was electric."

Diede de Groot of The Netherlands defeated her doubles partner Jiske Griffioen 6-2, 6-1 to win her 11th successive Grand Slam women’s wheelchair singles title.

There was no stopping the reigning Paralympic champion who registered her 111th consecutive win.

De Groot has won every major title in the women’s wheelchair singles since the 2021 Australian Open.

She now holds 19 Grand Slam crowns, including five Wimbledon trophies.

There was also delight for The Netherlands in the quad wheelchair doubles as Niels Vink and Sam Schroder overcame Australia's Heath Davidson and Canada's Robert Shaw 7-6, 6-0 in the final.

Competition is due to be completed tomorrow with the men’s wheelchair singles final between Hewett and Oda and the quad wheelchair singles between Vink and Davidson.
