Wimbledon final viewing figures revealed with it just falling short of Charles' coronation as millions tune into BBC | The Sun

CARLOS ALCARAZ'S Wimbledon triumph attracted almost as much ratings as King Charles' coronation.

Alcaraz won the title after beating Novak Djokovic at Centre Court on Sunday.

And the thrilling match attracted a peak audience of 11.2million viewers on BBC One.

Alcaraz beat Djokovic following a 1-6 7-6 (8-6) 6-1 3-6 6-4 victory to win his first singles title in an all-time classic.

And the audience was slightly less than the 12.03m Brits who tuned in for the coronation in May.

A total of 32.3m viewers watched Alf Ramsey's heroes beat West Germany 4-2 at Wembley.
