The Yorkshireman beat Murray in straight sets at Eastbourne, making him only the fifth British player ever to beat the Scot and the first since Tim Henman in 2006.

In a tweet, Edmund said it was 'an honour as always' to share the court with Murray.

However, the 6-4 6-4 victory raises fresh doubts about Murray's readiness to play at Wimbledon next week.
