Cud­dle from mum makes ace feel bet­ter af­ter a tough day

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - NEWS -

Sir Andy Mur­ray re­ceived a cud­dle from his mother af­ter a “tough day” in which he an­nounced he will retire this year.

The three-time Grand Slam win­ner fought back tears in Mel­bourne as he an­nounced the up­com­ing Aus­tralian Open could be his last tour­na­ment.

Trib­utes poured in as his le­gions of fans di­gested the an­nounce­ment.

Hours later, the ten­nis star re­sponded with a post on In­sta­gram show­ing him em­brac­ing his mother Judy.

He wrote: “Best way to feel bet­ter af­ter a tough day is a big cud­dle from your mum.

“Gen­uinely been very touched by all of the mes­sages and sup­port from ev­ery­body to­day... it means a lot and has made me feel much more pos­i­tive than when I woke this morn­ing. Thank you so much.”

The for­mer world num­ber one has bat­tled to re­cover from a chronic hip con­di­tion for more than 18 months.
