Since its discovery in 2012, the Higgs boson has served as an important probe for precision measurements of the Standard Model and for searches for new physics beyond the Standard Model. One major goal of the LHC is the precise measurement of the Higgs Yukawa couplings to fermions. The latest ATLAS results of measurements of the Higgs boson decaying to leptons are presented, namely the cross-section measurement of the Higgs boson decay to two tau leptons and the searches for the di-muon decay and lepton-flavour-violating decays of the Higgs boson.

Author comments upon resubmission

Dear editors and referee,

thank you for the report. I addressed the suggested modifications and resubmitted the updated proceedings.

List of changes

Added the references [6], [8] and [10] citing the evidence for H->tautau in Run I by CMS and the recent publications (2018) by CMS on the observation of H->tautau and the search for H->mumu. The references are mentioned in the introduction.
