Jamie Murray won his first men’s doubles grand slam title as he and partner Bruno Soares came from behind to beat Canada’s Daniel Nestor and Czech Radek Stepanek in the Australian Open final.

Murray had lost in the finals with John Peers at Wimbledon and the US Open last year but with new partner Soares he made it third time lucky as the pair edged a thrilling contest 2-6 6-4 7-5.

The win could form the second part of a Scottish treble in Melbourne after Gordon Reid won the wheelchair singles earlier on Saturday while Andy Murray takes on Novak Djokovic in the men’s singles final on Sunday.
