Murray’s in the swing as he steps up his recovery after surgery

Andy Murray has stepped up his recovery from his hip operation by playing a round of golf.

The two-time Wimbledon champion had a hip resurfacing operation in January as he attempts to overcome a troublesome problem after still being bothered following initial hip surgery in January 2018.

The 31-year-old shared a clip on his Instagram Story of him playing golf accompanied by the message: “Played my first round of gold for 6 years yesterday…pain free. Hip resurfacing = (thumbs up)”

His last appearance came at the Australian Open, losing to Roberto Bautista Agut in a gruelling five-set match in the first round, but has said since his surgery that he would love to be able to play at Wimbledon in July.
