London: Wimbledon Champion Andy Murray has been named Britain`s champion of champions based on a recent poll taken by Sun readers, while Sir Bradley Wiggins finished second with Olympic ace Mo Farah in third.

In a poll to choose the top sports star from a momentous 12 months, voters went for Murray as the overwhelming favourite after his historic Wimbledon win.

There were talks of Murray being given knighthood with British PM David Cameron leading among supporters but a few people suggested it might be too early for the Scot to receive such a title.

Murray ended Britain`s 77-year wait for a men`s singles champion at Wimbledon after he defeated Novak Djokovic in straight sets in the 2013 final.
