Andy Murray says that he needed "persuading" to take part in the recent BBC documentary about him.

Andy Murray has revealed that he needed "persuading" to agree to the BBC following him around for months for a documentary.

The programme aired on Sunday, the night before the Scotsman defeated Benjamin Becker in three sets to progress into the second round at Wimbledon.

"I took a fair bit of persuading to get involved with it but I know there's been quite a bit of positive reaction and I appreciate it a lot," Murray wrote in his BBC Sport column.

"I haven't actually seen it myself yet, apart from the last five minutes, as I was told it probably wouldn't be a good idea for me so close to the biggest couple of weeks of the year.

"We recorded it and I'll definitely have a look at some stage, but I watched Mock The Week instead. The perfect preparation!"

During the documentary, Murray recalled the Dunblane school tragedy for the first time.
