Andy Murray had to retract a comment he made on Twitter after saying he was getting married to long-term partner Kim Sears.

He appeared to suggest during a question and answer session that he was to wed after this season's Wimbledon, where he is the defending champion, but later admitted that he was joking.

However, Murray has since insisted it was just a prank.

He has been together with Sears, daughter of tennis coach Nigel Sears, since 2006.
