The new world number one tennis player Andy Murray celebrated reaching the summit of the sport by beating American John Isner to register his maiden BNP Paribas Masters title. Murray beat Isner 6-3, 6-7, 6-4 to win what was his eighth title of 2016, a season where he has created history.

The Scot becomes the first British man to be ranked number one since computerized rankings were introduced in 1973 while also becoming the second oldest player to reach the top spot since John Newcombe did it at the age of 30 in 1974.

It has been a good year for the 29-year-old, who heads into the season ending ATP World Tour Finals as the man to beat. In fact, such has been his form that he is currently on a 19-match winning streak and goes into the final event 405 points ahead of former world number Novak Djokovic.

His record breaking achievements got a lot of fellow players and celebrities gushing on Twitter. We at IBTimes UK take a look at some of the best tweets in honour of the current world number one.
