Andy Murray says he is "back in the good books" at home after his "stolen" tennis shoes and wedding ring were found in Indian Wells.

The British three-time Grand Slam champion had left his shoes with his wedding ring attached under the car his team are using in California in order to dry out after practice.

After discovering they were missing the next day, Murray put out an appeal for their return on Instagram, saying he was "in the bad books at home".

But Murray didn't stay there too long, posting another video later on Thursday to celebrate being reunited with his missing items - even if the trainers were no fresher.


"Huge thanks for all the messages and to everyone for sharing the story," said the 34-year-old.

"I had to make a few calls and chat to the security at the hotel but would you believe it?

"They still absolutely stink but the shoes are back, the wedding ring is back and I'm back in the good books - let's go!"

Murray, who is preparing to play at Indian Wells for the first time since 2017, earlier admitted the fact that he ties his wedding ring to his laces while training and playing had completely slipped his mind as he went to buy replacement shoes.

"My physio said to me 'where's your wedding ring?' I was like 'oh no'," he said.
