More positive news has been delivered on Andy Murray's comeback from injury.

The three-time major winner has been on the sidelines since March after picking up an ankle injury in Miami. 

The Scot, 36, damaged his ligaments and there were fears that his career in the sport could be over.

He has announced his intentions to retire after playing at Wimbledon this summer, as well as representing Team GB and the Olympic Games in Paris.

Due to the nature of his injury though, his participation in both of these events was placed into doubt. 

However, after deciding not to get an operation on his ankle, the recovery time has been significantly shortened, and so he's back fit and ready to play.

He will play at the Geneva Open on May 18. 

But in further good news, it seems he will bring his comeback forward to next week when he plays in a Challenger event in Bordeaux.
