We all fell in love with Andy Murray’s girlfriend, Kim Sears, in 2012. Her complete dedication to supporting her man at the Olympics and then at Wimbledon (not to mention her incredibly glossy hair) meant Kim was a girl we definitely warmed to.
After six years together, we’ve been waiting for the news that the pair are getting hitched and today we thought it had come… because it sort of did… didn’t it?
In a live Twitter chat, a fan asked Andy ‘When are you getting married? :)’
To which he replied: ‘We are getting married just after Wimbledon should be a great day’.
Instantly the press went into a frenzy, reporting on the happy news only to have it pulled out from under them with this baffling tweet from the tennis champ.
3 things.. I don’t smoke grass, I’m not getting married(yet) and I don’t want to kill rafael Nadal..

Say what Andy? But you SAID! You SAID yourself! Was it just a cruel joke? Does Kim think it’s funny? Does she, Andy?
Well, his PR team have confirmed the comment was just ‘tongue in cheek answer’ and the pair have no plans to tie the knot just yet.
Hmm… you may be a whizz with a racket, but we’d leave the jokes to someone else if we were you Andy.
Where to next?
