Sadly Andy Murray has announced in tears that he is retiring. A big thank you to him for the many joyous moments he has given us. He made you proud to be a Brit! He will make his exit after Wimbledon.

It's possible he may not make it to Wimbledon, apparently. Poor chap was in tears when making his announcement on TV.
He will certainly be missed and I'm not aware of any Brit that can take his place, which is a great shame.
I'm not a Brit but wstched his first Wimbledon win with tears in my eyes I was so proud. And it was the same for his second win.
I will certainly miss him and wish him well for the future.

Rather amused to see though that the first link was dated 28 Dec - admittedly don't watch a lot of news but completely missed this one!

I knew he was struggling to get back to full health. His last tournament showed that.
Very sad news. I will miss him.
BBC News explains more about his excruciating pain to his hip even after surgery. I have just watched the very emotional press conference he gave. Apparently there is a chance of more surgery, though no guarantee he could return after that.
