Britain's Andy Murray claimed a record fifth title at Queen's Club on Sunday as the top-seeded defending champion recovered from a set and 3-0 down to beat Milos Raonic 6-7 (5), 6-4, 6-3.

Neither player faced a break point in the opening set, and after taking the tiebreaker Raonic made an intimidating start to the second by dropping just one point in the first three games.

Murray appeared to be overwhelmed, but he responded by winning the next five games en route to leveling the match.

Continuing his momentum in the final set Murray broke to lead 1-0, and a further break at 5-3 secured him his second title of the year.
