Relieved Andy Murray reveals his wedding ring was returned after his tennis shoes went missing in Indian Wells
Andy Murray’s wedding ring and tennis shoes were found after they went missing in the California desert.
The three-time major winner is gearing up for action at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells and left his tennis shoes outside under his car to dry overnight – but they were nowhere to be found when he returned in the morning.
And it was only when his physiotherapist asked him about his wedding ring that he realized that he had left the ring attached to his shoes.
In an Instagram video posted late Thursday, which was shared on Twitter by the ATP Tour, Murray said: “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. history of shoes and the alliance.
“(I) had to make a few calls today and chat with hotel security and stuff.
“Little update for everyone,” he said, putting up the shoes in sight.
“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.
In a previous post, Murray lightly asked for the ring to be returned – to help sort things out with his frustrated wife.
Murray had asked the fans for help in finding his wedding ring which had been taken to California during his preparation for the Indian Wells Masters
He explained that he let his shoes dry under his car because “I don’t have a balcony in my room and I didn’t want to leave them in my room because it would stink the room”.
Murray married his longtime girlfriend Kim Sears in 2015 at Dunblane Cathedral and has been playing with her wedding ring strapped to one of her shoelaces ever since.
He is due to face Frenchman Adrian Mannarino in the first round at Indian Wells on Friday.
