Johanna Konta beat Romanian second seed Simona Halep in a thrilling match to become Britain’s first women’s Wimbledon semi-finalist since 1978.

Sixth seed Konta, 26, fought back to win 6-7 (2-7) 7-6 (7-5) 6-4 and match Virginia Wade’s feat of 39 years ago.

With Wade watching from the Royal Box, Konta served superbly to win in two hours and 38 minutes and set up a semi-final against American Venus Williams.
