Tennis game Australian Open
"Tough luck Andy, you fight alot I wish you the best for the rest of the season. I want to congratulate you and Kim on your engagement and hope you have many kids. It's slightly different thinking for me now since I've become a dad and husband."
12.34 Murray steps up to receive his fourth runners-up trophy in Melbourne...and takes to the mic:
"I'd like to congratulate Novak on a fifth Australian title, it's thoroughly deserved."
He goes through the usually thank-yous and says: "It's been my most consistent grand slam tournament so thank you for your support. I couldn't quite do it tonight, but I've come closer than other years. It's amazing to play in front of these amazing players too so thanks for making it all special. I'll try and come back next year and have a slightly different outcome in the final."

Murray tries to keep up the fight by swatting a forehand down the line but Djokovic creeps back in front as Murray's energy levels take another nosedive.
