Andy Murray Won't Marry Kim Sears (Yet)

Andy Murray has been forced to clarify he will not marry his long-term girlfriend Kim Sears this summer, after appearing to tweet his wedding plans.

The tennis star hinted he would finally wed his partner of eight years during a question-and-answer session on Twitter.

"We are getting married just after Wimbledon, should be a great day," the 26-year-old wrote.

However, his tweet was one of several bizarre replies to questions from his 2.3 million followers which suggested Murray was having a bit of fun.

After several news organisations wrote about his wedding plans, Murray tweeted a clarification.

"Three things. I don't smoke grass, I'm not getting married (yet) and I don't want to kill Rafael Nadal," he wrote.

Murray's 2013Wimbledon triumph was the second Grand Slam of his career.

The British number one also won a gold medal at the Olympic Games in London in 2012.
