Andy Murray ‘battered and bruised’ after hip surgery

Andy Murray has revealed he feels ‘battered and bruised’ following hip surgery.

The Scottish tennis star, 31, had the operation to correct a long-term problem with pain in his joint.

The three-time major champion posted a message on Instagram saying he had a metal joint implanted into his hip at a hospital in London.

He even attached an image of an x-ray showing the surgeon’s work.

Despite the procedure, he seemed in good spirits joking that he has ‘got a bit of a gut in photo’, adding a laughing emoji to the post.

Murray has previously complained of hip pain, having dealt with it through out his career.

He will now undergo more rehabilitation to see if he can play again.

The surgery means he might not be fit to take part at Wimbledon this summer, where he had planned to say goodbye to the sport.
