Andy Murray: 'Rafael Nadal sent me flirty texts'

Andy Murray reveals that Rafael Nadal once pretended to be a secret admirer while he was in a New York restaurant with his girlfriend Kim Sears.

Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has revealed that fellow tennis star Rafael Nadal played a prank on him while he was having dinner with his girlfriend Kim Sears.

The Scotsman, who was in New York with his partner of eight years at the time, has claimed that the Spaniard pretended to be a secret admirer after spotting him in the same restaurant.

"He did prank me once in New York," Murray said on The Jonathan Ross Show. "Basically I was sitting at dinner with my girlfriend and during the meal I was checking my phone and I looked at one of the messages and it was from a number I didn't recognise.

"It said something like, 'oh my God, Andy, you look so sexy tonight. It's a shame you're here with your girlfriend.' So I obviously didn't tell my girlfriend at first, I didn't want to ruin the meal. So I put it back in my pocket.

"Then on the way back from the meal it clicked who it was, and obviously the whole time he'd been watching me from a distance looking at this message and seeing my face."

Murray's appearance on the show will air on Saturday evening on ITV.
