The Genius Media Nigeria reports that the 33-year-old Brit had been preparing for the year’s first Grand Slam, the Australian Open. He was due to travel to Australia on one of the 18 charter flights laid on by tournament organisers but is still isolating at home, according to Mail Online.

Murray, who is said to be in good health, is hoping to be able to arrive in Australia at a later date and still participate in the tournament which begins on February 8.

The news comes after a minor outbreak at Roehampton’s National Tennis Centre last week – where Murray has done some of his recent training.

An LTA spokesperson confirmed: “An individual using the NTC has returned a positive Covid-19 test result.

“We have established processes in place for this eventuality and have traced those who have been in contact with the individual, interviewed them and asked them to self-isolate for 10 days.

“Public Health England have been notified and we are ensuring processes are being followed, including additional deep cleaning, to ensure that the NTC remains a Covid-secure venue.”

Three-time Grand Slam winner Murray is a five-time finalist at the Melbourne event.
