Andy Murray’s dogs wear his medals (Picture)
Andy Murray had a major breakthrough when he beat Roger Federer in the men’s singles finals at the London Olympics to win his first title in a major competition. Murray had been to four grand slam finals and lost all of them, including a defeat to Federer at Wimbledon last month, before capturing the gold medal. This was the sort of breakthrough Murray was hinting at when he compared himself to LeBron James. It was especially satisfying because it won a gold medal for Great Britain the year the country hosted the Games (Murray is technically a Scotsman). But he wasn’t the only one to reap the rewards of the win.
As seen in the picture above, Murray’s dogs Maggie May and Rusty got to wear the medals their owner won at the London Games. Maggie May has the gold Murray won in men’s singles, and she “taunted” Rusty for wearing the silver Murray won in mixed doubles.
“Here we go folks… Just checking to make sure Rusty definitely has the silver, obviously,” the tweet said.
Murray’s dogs have their own Twitter account and over 12,000 followers. We presume that they tweet using their paws, but rumor has it that Maggie May does most of the tweeting since Rusty is more of a Facebook fan.
