Roger Federer's wife Mirka and their twins after the Wimbledon final

Wimbledon champion Roger Federer's wife Mirka stands with all her twins during the presentation ceremony yesterday.

Roger Federer has two daughters, Charlene Riva and Myla Rose as well as sons, Lenny and Leo. 

Roger Federer trounced a tearful Marin Cilic to become the first man ever to win eight singles titles at Wimbledon yesterday.

It took the 35-year-old just an hour and 41 minutes to clinch by far his most one-sided Wimbledon final triumph and extend his overall record with a 19th Grand Slam singles title.

The 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 victory continues Federer's magnificent season in what should be his tennis dotage, but even the most ardent of the Swiss' fans — and there were many packed into Centre Court — did not want the final to play out like this.

A month short of his 36th birthday, Federer is the oldest man in the Open era to win the Wimbledon singles title. He is also only the second man after Rafael Nadal at Roland Garros to lift the trophy eight times at a single Slam and is now one short of Martina Navratilova's all-time record.
