Czech champion Kvitova fell to the ground in jubilation when she realised she was the winner before making her way up to embrace her family and supporters in the players' box.
It is Kvitova's second Wimbledon title, having won the grand slam tournament in 2011, winning this time round with a 6-3 6-0 victory that took just 55 minutes.

After losing the final set 6-0 Bouchard sat motionless in her chair, while Princess Eugenie and her boyfriend Jack Brooksbank applauded from the Royal Box.
Kvitova became the first Wimbledon champion to make use of a new gate which enabled her to celebrate with her loved ones without climbing on to the commentary box roof.
After hugging all the members of her team she returned to the court and waved to the Royal Box.
Both players left the court while the Centre Court roof was closed for the presentation.
