As the three-time major winner was preparing for action at the Indian Wells Masters, his followers on Instagram made an appeal to whomsoever concerned to return the same as they were nowhere to be found despite a thorough search.
To those who are not aware, the ace British tennis player had to appeal on his social media account for the return of his wedding ring. The 34-year-old revealed that he left his shoes under his car so that they would get dry but they were stolen by the next morning.
However, it was only when his physio inquired about the his wedding ring that he realised he had left it tied to the lace of his shoe. But as astonishing as it may seem, the Instagram appeals made by the followers of the two-time Olympic gold medallist helped him reunite with his shoe and wedding ring.

“Would you believe it…they still absolutely stink but the shoes are back, the wedding ring is back and I’m back in the good books. Let’s go!”
