Sponsorship idents for the GlaxoSmithKline pain relief brand celebrate ‘the joy of movement’ and will appear throughout of Eurosport’s 200 hours of extensive live coverage and highlights programmes. They will also be shown on Eurosport Player where every single moment from up to 12 match courts will be streamed live and on-demand.

Britain’s 2012 champion, Sir Andy Murray, current world number one Rafael Nadal and five-time champion Roger Federer headline the list of the biggest stars in the men’s game. While Johanna Konta will hope to build on her impressive form which saw the rising star become the first British woman since 1978 to reach the Wimbledon semi-finals.
