Wimbledon are planning to honour Andy Murray with a statue at the All-England club, their chief executive has confirmed.
Currently, three-time British Wimbledon winner Fred Perry is immortalised outside the club, where it has stood since 1994.
Now, though, following Murray’s decision to retire this year, Perry is set to get some company.
Adversity. Emotion. Perseverance. Triumph. History.

“We always felt that when Andy retired, that would be the appropriate time to recognise his extraordinary career,” Wimbledon chief executive Richard Lewis told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“I am sure something like [a statue] will be done, but meanwhile down at the club, he is seen as a highly-respected person both on and off the court.”
