Andy Murray ‘in the bad books’ with wife Kim after his wedding ring is stolen

Andy Murray has admitted that he is 'in the doghouse' with his wife Kim after his wedding ring was stolen when he left his tennis shoes under a car.

The Wimbledon champion left his belongings under the car overnight in California, where he is playing in the Indian Wells tournament.

In a video posted on Instagram, Andy explains that he left his shoes under a vehicle to dry off, admitting that in hindsight the move was "idiotic".

Andy is unable to wear his wedding ring whilst playing on the court so instead, he ties it to his laces to keep it safe.

Appealing for the safe return of the ring, Any said on Instagram: "Last night after dinner 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 38C here so my shoes were very sweaty, damp and smelly.

"I decided when I got back to the hotel, the shoes needed some air to dry them out a bit. 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 out.

"So I thought I'll leave the shoes underneath the car to get some air to them and dry them out overnight. When I got back to the car in the morning, the shoes were gone."

He then went on to add that he realised his wedding ring was lost when his physiotherapist asked him where it was.

Andy said: "My tennis shoes for the tournament had been stolen so I had to go to a local pro shop to buy different shoes. Not the end of the world but not ideal. As I was preparing for my practice, my physio said to me, 'where is your wedding ring?' And I was like 'oh no'.

"I tie my wedding ring to my shoes when I'm playing because I can't play with it on my hand. So my wedding ring has been stolen as well so, needless to say, I am in the bad books at home so I want to try and find it. So if anyone can share this or have any clue where they may be, it would be very helpful if I could get it back or get to the bottom of it."

In the post caption, Andy wrote: "Yes I know I'm an idiot and in hindsight it seems like a terrible idea but I need some help. What should the reward be for getting it back?"

He also included the hashtags #ring #shoes #idiot #help #clown.

The star came up with the idea to keep his ring safe following his marriage to Kim Sears back in April 2015.

At his first tournament after his wedding Andy attached the ring to the laces of his trainers which he used as a good luck charm as he won the tournament.

He said at the time: "I won't lose it if it's tied to my shoelace. As soon as the match is over I put it back on. If I'd keep it in my bag I'd have lost it already."
