Andy Murray's remarkable comeback continues apace.

The Briton captured his first singles title since 2017 - and first since undergoing career-saving hip surgery in January - by topping Stan Wawrinka in the final of the European Open on Sunday.

In typical Murray fashion, the 32-year-old scrapped his way to victory, battling back from a set and a break down to claim a momentous 3-6, 6-4, 6-4 win.

"It means a lot. Last few years have been extremely difficult," Murray said after the match, per the BBC.

"I didn't expect to be in this position at all. I'm happy, very happy."

Murray, who contemplated walking away from the sport amid his ongoing hip issues, was playing in just his seventh tournament since returning to singles action.

"I think the tennis world, including me, was really sad in Australia after that press conference," Wawrinka said during the trophy presentation in Antwerp, referencing the January press conference in which an emotional Murray foreshadowed retirement.

"To see you back at this level, it's amazing. We're all really happy ... You're an amazing champion and you deserve that."
