WATCH: ‘Idiot’ Andy Murray needs your help as he lost his ‘sweaty and smelly shoes’ with his wedding ring

Andy Murray in action

Andy Murray is in the “bad books at home” after losing his wedding ring in Indian Wells and he has taken to social media to try to find the stolen loot.

The former world No 1, currently in Indian Wells for the BNP Paribas Open, left his “damp, sweaty and yes, smelly” tennis shoes in the car as he wanted to dry them out, but someone stole it.

And unfortunately for Murray, his wedding ring was tied to his shoes.

The three-time Grand Slam winner, though, hopes to get the ring back and he has requested the help of social media users and even offered a reward.

“Swipe to hear the story about the 💍 and the 👠 Yes I know I’m an idiot and in hindsight it seems like a terrible idea but I need some help🤣 What should the reward be for getting it back?,” he posted in the caption.

In a video on Instagram he explained: “Last night after dinner here in Indian Wells, got back in the car to go back to the hotel – and the car didn’t smell great – I left my tennis shoes in there.

“It’s like 38/39 degrees so my tennis shoes are pretty damp, sweaty and yes, smelly so I decided when I got to the hotel that the shoes needed some air, I needed to dry them out a little bit. I have no balcony in my room and I didn’t want to leave them in my room because it would stink the room out so I thought I’m gonna leave the shoes underneath the car to get them air and to dry them out overnight. When I got back to the car in the morning, the shoes were gone so my tennis shoes for the tournament have been stolen.

“So I had to go to a local pro shop to buy different shoes to what I normally I wear – a different brand and everything, which is not the end of the world – obviously not ideal.

“I was preparing for my practice, my physio said to me ‘where is your wedding ring?’ and I was like ‘oh no’. I tie my wedding ring to my tennis shoes when I am playing because I can’t play with it on my hand so I yeah my wedding ring has been stolen as well.

“Needless to say I am in the bad books at home so I wanna try and find it. If anyone can share this or may have any clue where it may be, it would be very helpful.”
