Play was halted by rain after just 40 minutes of the opening day at Wimbledon.

British number one Cameron Norrie, beginning proceedings on Court Two, had just taken the first set 6-0 against Spain’s Pablo Andujar when the rain came.

Play was suspended on all the outside courts and will not begin before 1pm at the earliest.
