Wimbledon day 12: Cameron Norrie’s run comes to an end with semi-final defeat

Cameron Norrie’s brilliant run at Wimbledon ended at the semi-final stage after defending champion Novak Djokovic fought back from a set down to continue his remarkable winning streak in SW19.

It is now 27 victories in a row for the Serbian at the All England Club and sets up a clash with Nick Kyrgios in Sunday’s final.
