Andy Murray has returned to the tennis court, seen hitting again via a post on his Instagram, as he steps up his recovery from an ankle injury.

The 36-year-old three-time grand slam champion damaged two ligaments in his left ankle during a defeat at the Miami Open last month.

He decided against having surgery on the ankle but, even with his post on Instagram on Friday, there remains no date as of yet for his return to competition.

Murray previously said he would like to compete at the Olympics once more before retiring - he is a two-time gold medallist. The 2024 Games start at the end of July in Paris.

Wimbledon - where he has also won two titles - starts on July 1. Before that the French Open starts on May 26. Murray has only played at Roland-Garros once since career-saving hip surgery in 2019.
