Andy Murray's big 'metal hip' surgery update

Former world No.1 Andy Murray has posted photos from his hospital bed after undergoing hip resurfacing surgery in London.

Three-times grand slam winner Murray has struggled to regain form since undergoing a hip operation last January.

“I now have a metal hip,” the 31-year-old Murray wrote in a post on Instagram following his surgery on Monday.

The two-time Wimbledon champion was debating having the procedure, which involves putting a metal plate into the joint, in a final bid to prolong his career.

Murray hinted after his heartbreaking Australian Open exit that an operation would almost certainly rule him out of Wimbledon later this year – albeit extending his career beyond 2019.

“The first option (surgery) makes my life a lot more comfortable and enjoyable but potentially means I never play again and also miss Wimbledon.
