The BBC has extended its deal with the All England Club to secure tennis from Wimbledon on the BBC until and including 2020.
The extended three-year deal keeps the Grand Slam free to air and includes live online and radio coverage.
The announcement means the world-famous tennis tournament remains free-to-air across BBC One, Two, the Red Button, online and on radio for another three years.
BBC director general Tony Hall said Wimbledon “unites the nation” and that he was “delighted” with the deal.
In what is the longest partnership in sports broadcasting history, the tournament will continue to be played out across BBC One, BBC Two, the BBC Red Button and the BBC Sport website, with live radio coverage on Radio 5 live.
The BBC first broadcast from Wimbledon in 1937
