British tennis star Andy Murray has made an appeal to the public to help find his wedding ring after it was stolen when he left it tied to his shoes. Notably, Murray had tied his wedding ring to the shoes because he doesn’t play with it on. He had left his ‘smelly’ shoes out overnight to let them get some fresh air after practicing for upcoming Indian Wells tournament.
Murray took to Instagram to request for the return of his wedding ring. Murray shared the ordeal he faced in a video post and captioned it, “Yes I know I’m an idiot and in hindsight it seems like a terrible idea but I need some help”, with a laughing face emoji.
In the video shared on Instagram, Murray said, “Hi everyone, how you doing? Got a quick story here for you that I need a little bit of help with.
“Basically last night at the dinner here in Indian Wells I got back in the car to go back to the hotel and the car didn’t smell great.
“I left my tennis shoes in there and it’s been like 39 degrees so my tennis shoes are pretty damp, sweaty and, yeah, smelly.

The three-time Grand Slam winner is preparing for action at the Indian Wells tournament. Murray will play Adrian Mannarino of France in his first appearance at Indian Wells in four years. Murray has been out of form of late and recently lost to Stefanos Tsitsipas, Casper Ruud and Wimbledon semi-finalist Hubert Hurkacz.
He spoke out on his recent performances and said, “I have also had a number of opportunities in those matches and not quite taken them.”
“They are going to snuff out some opportunities that you create, but also there’s been some stuff in those matches that I certainly feel I could have done better.
“I really don’t feel like I’ve been outclassed, or that I have had no chances against them, so there are some positives to take from those losses.”
