The former world No1, 31, has returned the ring to his wife, Kim, who was diagnosed with a form of Hodgkin’s lymphoma last year
Andy Murray is back in the “good books” with wife Kim after recovering a missing wedding ring.
The former world No1, 31, apparently lost the ring during an altitude training session in Denver, Colorado. The picture of the ring being carried into a car by a fitness instructor was shared on Instagram on Saturday, prompting a flurry of replies from “fans”.
“Andy noticed the ring was missing and a couple of days later, his wife found it. She told him, ‘I’ve found it’ and then gave it back to him and he is back in the good books after that,” an unnamed friend told The Sun. “They are a lovely couple and they want to keep things as normal as possible.”
A report in the Mail on Sunday said the training session was part of a three-week stay in the US to prepare for the US Open, which Murray won to defend his title and stay in the world’s top three.
A spokesman for Murray said the retired tennis player had not revealed the ring’s whereabouts. “He has not mentioned this in public,” the spokesman said. “His wife found it with the help of a fitness trainer.”
The tennis star won two grand slam singles titles – the Australian Open in 2013 and Wimbledon in 2016 – and at the age of 29 was a clear favourite to end Britain’s 76-year wait for a male grand slam champion.
But he fought back from a right hip injury that at one point meant he could not walk, to reach a 10th Wimbledon final last month, where he was beaten by Sam Querrey. The Scot then missed the US Open with a hip injury.
