Wimbledon champion Andy Murray reportedly decides against attending the BBC's Sports Personality of the Year awards, despite being the favourite to take home the honour.

Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has reportedly decided not to attend the BBC's Sports Personality of the Year awards this year as he continues to return from a back injury.

The Scotsman has been heavily tipped to take home the gong after becoming the first Brit since Fred Perry 77 years ago to win the men's singles title at Wimbledon in the summer.

Murray has regrettably had to pull out of the ceremony as he will be working on his rehab in a Miami camp up until Christmas Day, according to the Daily Mail.

The British number one underwent back surgery in September.
