Andy Murray who is currently recovering from back surgery had a scare of his life while in London on Wednesday.
Police arrested four men suspected of brandishing a gun at tennis star Andy Murray but it has emerged they may have been autograph hunters carrying a tennis racquet.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said they received a call at 17:00 on Wednesday to report a sighting of a man with a firearm in a Mercedes car in Avenue Road. But it’s believed the four men were carrying tennis rackets for Andy Murray to sign, although it wasn’t clear.
Four men – aged 21, 26, 27 and 31 were stopped on Tadema Road in Chelsea where Police found no trace of any firearms. They were later bailed until late January pending further inquiries.
