Sarah Ferguson has been gripped to the Wimbledon championships just like the rest of us, and the mother-of-two has since sent a lovely message of support to Johanna Konta following her quarter-final defeat on Tuesday. Making sure the tennis star knew that everyone was behind her, Sarah shared a series of pictures of Johanna in action on the court, and wrote: "Congratulations @johannakonta keep fighting! You have done the UK proud." Many of Sarah's followers were quick to add to her comment, with one writing: "She definitely has, without question!" while another added: "She has! She's done amazingly. Onwards and upwards."

Every decision I made, every thought process, every opportunity I gave myself, I have no regrets in doing."

Many of Johanna's fans sent support to the 28-year-old following her defeat, including the Duchess of Cambridge's brother James Middleton – who has been a regular, along with the rest of his family, at the games.

On Twitter, she wrote: "Just cried four times during Toy Story 4, one of them before the film even started, during the trailers." Johanna also shared a photo of herself in her living room resting on the sofa with her pet dog.

Johanna spoke to HELLO! just before Wimbledon kicked off, and opened up about her boyfriend, photographer Jackson Wade, who lives with her in south west London. "My boyfriend empowers me," she said. "He encourages me to trust my own decisions and be who I am, because he says I am awesome – so therefore I should believe it to." She added: "We live together and we are fully committed to our dog together, so we've already got a few commitments at the moment."
