Scottish tennis champion Andy Murray’s wedding ring and tennis shoes have been found after they apparently 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 to dry under his car overnight – but they were nowhere in sight 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 Thursday night, which was shared on Twitter by the ATP Tour, Murray said: shoes and the wedding ring.
“(I) had to make a few calls today and chat with hotel security and stuff. Little update for everyone, ”he said, lifting the shoes up 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.” Let’s go. “
In a previous post, Murray gleefully requested the return of the ring to help sort things out with his frustrated wife.
He said 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. The couple now have four children.
The Scotsman is due to face Frenchman Adrian Mannarino in the first round at Indian Wells on Friday.
