The start of the 121st Wimbledon tennis championships was delayed on Monday because of rain.

Play had been due to start on the outside courts at the All England club at 1100 GMT but steady rain forced the start to be delayed by at least an hour and a half.

With showers forecast for the first three days of the two-week tournament, organisers were bracing themselves for some scheduling headaches as they attempt to get through 128 first round matches in the men's and women's singles.
