Judy Murray has spoken about the moment her son stopped traffic to rescue a dog on his way to train for Wimbledon. Andy Murray came to the rescue of the labradoodle at the weekend as it ran towards oncoming cars.
Judy Murray said to her son: "What you doing? You're on the way to Wimbledon and you're going to get run over."
Not surprisingly the dog's owner was shocked to see who had saved her precious labradoodle, adding: "Andy was sitting in the car and she just went, 'Oh my God'."
Speaking to BBC Radio Five Live earlier this week Andy Murray said:
"I met the owner and she was happy I'd picked it up. "The dog was pretty strong, I don't think it really wanted me to grab it by the collar and put it in the car but thankfully the dog was fine and it's all good."
Andy Murray stopped traffic as he came to the rescue of a dog running towards oncoming cars.
On his way to practice at the All England Club in Wimbledon, the Scot made an unscheduled stop to save the labradoodle and then returned it to its owner.
Andy Murray told BBC Radio Five Live:
"I was driving to practice and there was a dog running along the road. I parked the car and got out and tried to stop the traffic because the dog was running towards the oncoming traffic. I ran into the road, stopped the traffic and I managed to get the dog onto the back seat of my car.
"Then I drove to the place where all of the people walk their dogs, which is literally just round the corner. I called the number on the tag and amazingly my two dogs walk with that dog quite a lot. I met the owner and she was happy I'd picked it up.
"The dog was pretty strong, I don't think it really wanted me to grab it by the collar and put it in the car but thankfully the dog was fine and it's all good."
The tennis champion was caught in the midst of a gun scare this week - but it turned out just to be an autograph hunter brandishing a tennis racquet.
Police were called on Wednesday evening by a member of the public saying they had spotted a group of men in Swiss Cottage and thought one of them was carrying a gun. They followed the men's car to Chelsea and arrested all four of them on suspicion of possessing a firearm.
However, it turned out two of them had simply been banging on the window of Murray's car with a racquet to try and get him to sign it. A police spokesman said later they had found no trace of a firearm in the car and the men had been bailed pending further enquiries.
