Her son may be in Acapulco, but Judy Murray's stepped in to pick up another award for the Wimbledon winner tonight.

The tennis coach proudly paraded the Sports Person of the Year Award 2013 at a ceremony in Glasgow's City Chambers.

It comes after he topped a poll in a contest run by Glasgow Life to find Scotland's best sporting stars of the past year.

And Andy's achievement in becoming the first women men's singles title since Fred Perry 77 years ago fitted the bill.

The world number seven and Dunblane-born star was in Acapulco. But he's not on the beach and is competing in the Mexican Open, where he's through to this weekend's semi-finals.

His mum Judy was more than delighted to receive the award and meet dignitaries and other winners.

There were dozens of other sporting achievers recognised at the glitzy bash.

Andy's already been named the Sports Personality of the Year by the BBC.
