Andy Murray fans will face another nailbiting day as the British number one aims to repeat his Saturday night victory at Wimbledon on Monday.

The Scot takes on Croatia's Marin Cilic in the fourth round of the grand slam, scheduled second on Court One, although rain could disrupt play.

His match comes as Rufus the Hawk, who patrols Wimbledon, was found after being stolen on Thursday night.

The American Harris Hawk, used to deter pigeons from the SW19 club, was handed in to the RSPCA in Putney and is safely back with his owners.

His owner Imogen Davis, 25, said: "We have Rufus back, safe and well. We are ecstatic and so, so overwhelmed with all the lovely messages and help we have received."

Murray made history with his victory over Marcos Baghdatis on Saturday night with the latest finish Wimbledon has ever seen.

Fans feared the match would have to be finished on Monday, but Murray powered through to victory just after 11pm.

Cilic beat the clock himself with a five-set win over Sam Querrey that went to 17-15 in the decider.

The Croatian is on an eight-match winning streak on grass after benefiting from David Nalbandian's moment of madness in the AEGON Championships final at Queen's Club.

Cilic also ousted Murray in the fourth round of the US Open in 2009, but Murray got his own back the following year when he beat him to reach his first Australian Open final.
