The 32-year-old Serbian saved two match points as he took his Grand Slam tally to 16, four off Federer�s overall record.
Djokovic�s victory extends to 11 successive Grand Slams won by the big three, himself, Federer and Rafael Nadal.
At 4 hours and 57 minutes it was the longest final at Wimbledon. Stan Wawrinka was the last player outside the trio to win a Grand Slam, the 2016 US Open beating Djokovic.
The last player to win a Grand Slam aged under 30 was Andy Murray, who won the 2016 Wimbledon title aged 29. � AFP
