2,813

Scotland boasts a fine tradition of heroes, from the days of William Wallace up to tennis star Andy Murray, who did his country proud Monday night when he finally notched his first Grand Slam title by beating Novak Djokovic at the U.S. Open.

As Murray played his way to victory, though, another Scottish great was in the crowd to cheer him on.

Sean Connery, of 007 fame, pulled out his best tweed jacket and straw hat and fist-pumped Murray through the nerve-wracking first-set tiebreaker all the way to the five-set win.

Connery, 82, also showed up at Murray's match Saturday night with Scottish soccer legend Sir Alex Ferguson and met with Murray at his after-match press conference.

Check out the video below to see Connery celebrate his fellow Scotsman's killer shot.
