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.

Andy Murray was caught in a gun scare this week - that turned out to be 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.
