The three-time Grand Slam winner Andy Murray has tested positive for COVID-19, it emerges on Thursday.
The development has left the 33-old Scot’s Australia Open participation hopes in doubt.
Murry was due to due to fly down to Australia this week to complete a two-week quarantine before the first Grand Slam of the season on February 8.
The former world No.1 and three-time Major champion is reported to be in good health and isolating at his Surrey home.
Murray’s COVID test confirmation comes after a minor outbreak at Roehampton’s National Tennis Centre last week. Murray had been training at the venue training, along with current British No.1 Dan Evans.
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 has been notified and we are ensuring processes are being followed, including additional deep cleaning, to ensure that the NTC remains a Covid-secure venue.”
