British tennis star Andy Murray has lost his wedding ring and his smelly sneakers have returned to town for the BNP Paribas Open
(CNN) Andy Murray is back in the “good books” after regaining the alliance he lost when his sneakers went missing earlier this week. The three-time Grand Slam champion posted a video on Instagram On Thursday, he called for help after his shoes, to which the ring was attached, were removed from under his car as he prepared for the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells. Fortunately, the situation was resolved later in the day after a few phone calls.
“I just want to send a quick message to say a big thank you for all the posts and also everyone for sharing the story of the shoes and the wedding ring,” Murray said in a video posted to Instagram.
“I had to make a few calls today and chat with hotel security and stuff.”
He then revealed the coaches and gave them a snort on camera.
“Would you believe it they still absolutely stink but the shoes are back, the wedding ring is back and I’m back in the good books. Let’s go,” he added.
The ordeal began after the 34-year-old returned from dinner, claiming his sneakers were starting to smell after practicing for hours in the Californian sun. So he decided to let them dry under the car when he got back to his hotel. After leaving them in the air overnight, Murray returned in the morning to find his missing sneakers, meaning he was forced to find another pair in preparation for his match against Adrian Mannarino on Friday.
“While I was getting ready for my practice, my physiotherapist told me” where is your wedding ring? “, and I was like” oh no, “” Murray explained, trying to hold back the laughter in a video message. “Basically I tie my wedding ring to my tennis shoes when I play because I can’t play with it in my hand. So my wedding ring was also stolen.”
By the sheepish look on Murray’s face, it can be said that the news had not gone well with his wife Kim Sears, whom he married in 2015 and with whom he has four children.
“Needless to say, I’m in the wrong books at home so I want to try and find it,” he continued.
Well, the research is now over, and Murray, now back in the “good books”, can focus on his first BNP game on Friday.
