Great Britain's Olympic stars have reportedly been offered coveted Wimbledon tickets for the Royal Box.

The Grand Slam tournament gets underway today at SW19, with the likes of Andy Murray, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams all vying for the title.

Mo Farah, Laura Trott and Sir Chris Hoy will be among those watching the action over the fortnight, but Jessica Ennis has turned down the offer due to her training schedule, according to the Daily Star.

Meanwhile, Murray will begin his campaign with a first-round match against Benjamin Becker today.
