Andy Murray announced that his wedding ring was stolen after a mishap with his tennis shoes.

The two-time Wimbledon champion is preparing for the tournament in Indian Wells and has now submitted a call for the return of his wedding ring.

Murray stated that he left his tennis shoes outside to dry under his car overnight – but they were nowhere to be seen when he returned that morning.

And it wasn’t until his physiotherapist asked about his wedding ring that he realized he had left the ring on his shoes.

Murray called on social media to get active and lightly demanded the ring be returned – to help smooth things over with his frustrated wife.

“I got back in the car after dinner last night to return to the hotel and the car didn’t smell good,” Murray said on Instagram.

“Basically I left my tennis shoes in. It was 39 degrees, so my tennis shoes are pretty damp and sweaty.

“When I got back to the hotel, I decided that the shoes needed a little air, I have to dry them a little.

“I don’t have a balcony in my room and I didn’t want to leave them in my room as it would stink the room.

“So I thought I’d leave the shoes under the car to get some air and dry them overnight.

“Anyway, when I got back to the car in the morning my shoes were off.”

He continued, “So my tennis shoes had been stolen for the tournament so I had to go to the local pro shop and buy different shoes, a different brand, which is not the end of the world but obviously not ideal.

“But when I was preparing for my practice, my physical therapist said to me, ‘Where’s your wedding ring?’

“And I thought, oh no. I basically tie my wedding ring to my tennis shoes while I’m playing because I can’t play with it on my hand.

“So, yes, my wedding ring was stolen too. Needless to say, I’m at home in the bad books so I want to try and find him.

“So if anyone could share this or have any idea where they are, it would be very helpful. So if we could try to get them back and investigate, it would be very grateful.”

Murray, who married Kim Sears in 2015, has since played on one of his shoelaces with his wedding ring and took part in a training session prior to his kick-off at the Indian Wells tournament against Frenchman Adrian Mannarino.
