Here we look at the tennis star's career in pictures.

He attended Dunblane Primary School and was present when Thomas Hamilton killed 17 people in 1996.

At the age of 15, Murray decided to move from Scotland to Barcelona, Spain, where he trained on the clay courts of the Sanchez-Casal Academy.

Murray first came to the British public's attention in 2004 after he won the boy's singles title at the US Open.

In the final he defeated Ukraine's Sergiy Stakhovsy, who defeated Roger Federer in this year's Wimbledon, in two sets.

The 2008 US Open would be Murray's first appearance in a Grand Slam final but it ended in defeat with Roger Federer winning the title.

The Scot would lose four finals before claiming his first Grand Slam win.

Ivan Lendl's appointment as Murray's coach at the start of 2012 proved to be a turning point in the tennis star's career.

  • 2013

Murray, who is ranked number two in the world, started the year disappointingly after losing the Australian Open final and having to pull out of the French Open with an injury.

However, that disappointment soon disappeared as he became the first British man to win Wimbledon in 77 years.
