The curse of the wet British summer struck the Olympic tennis competition on Sunday, when rain forced the closure of the roof over Wimbledon's centre court on day two of the tournament.

After a sunny start, a heavy downpour sent spectators dashing for cover and delayed the opening of play on the outside courts, which are exposed to the elements, by three hours.

Earlier, in front of a packed crowd and with the noise of rain pounding on the roof, Britain's third-seeded Andy Murray then secured his place in the second round with a 6-3, 6-3 win over Switzerland's Stanislas Wawrinka.

Murray, did not manage to completely avoid the rain however.
