Cuddle from mum makes ace feel better after a tough day
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.
