Andy Murray was pulled out of the doubles competitions at the Miami Open after sustaining an ankle injury during his singles game against Tomas Machac on Sunday. 

The 36-year-old tennis icon proceeded to clutch his left ankle and scream as officials called the physiotherapist onto the court. 

After lengthy treatment and having his foot strapped, Murray continued the game before losing.

After his defeat,  Murray admitted the loss was likely to represent his last match in Miami. “I wasn’t thinking about all the matches I played," adding: "Just more that that’s the last match that I am going play here which is sad because I love it here. I’ve spent so much of my tennis career here and I would have liked it to have gone on a little bit longer."

After that, Murray announced the details of his injury on Instagram, saying: “Yesterday towards the end of my match in Miami I suffered a full rupture of my ATFL and near full thickness rupture of my CFL,” Murray posted on Instagram. “I will see an ankle specialist when I return home to determine next steps.

“Goes without saying this is a tough one to take and I’ll be out for an extended period. But I’ll be back with 1 hip and no ankle ligaments when the time is right.”

The latest game could be Murray's last hard-court match of his career as he announced that this season could be his last one.
