Great Britain won a 10th Davis Cup title and a first in 79 years after defeating Belgium 3-1 at the Flanders Expo in Ghent.
The hosts got off to a shaky start when No. 1 David Goffin dropped the first two sets against Davis Cup debutant Kyle Edmund but the Belgian showed why he was ranked No. 16 in the world by fighting back to win 36 16 62 61 60.
Thereafter the final became the Andy Murray show as the world No. 2 contributed to all three of Britain's points to clinch a famous victory for the visitors.
Murray overcame Ruben Bemelmans and Goffin in straight sets in singles and also teamed up with brother, Jamie, to secure a crucial doubles point against Goffin and Steve Darcis on the Saturday.
It was Great Britain's first title since 1936 and Murray became the first player to win eight live singles rubbers in one year since the introduction of the World Group in 1981.
