Andy Murray's camp deny rumours that he has proposed to his girlfriend Kim Sears.

Andy Murray's camp have reportedly denied rumours that the Scotsman has asked girlfriend Kim Sears to marry him.

The 27-year-old, who has been in a relationship with the Sussex-born artist for nine years, is currently competing at Wimbledon in a bid to successfully defend his title.

A number of tennis fans appear to have flocked to bookmakers William Hill to put money on odds of 8/1 for Murray to be crowned Wimbledon champion and get engaged.

However, according to the Daily Mail, a representative for the British number one said: "Not sure where the speculation is coming from, but it's complete nonsense."

Murray will play at the All England Club this afternoon in the third round against Roberto Bautista-Agut after securing a straight-sets win over Blaz Rola on Wednesday.
