Murray's icy veneer is finally broken as he weeps for the cameras

Maybe if he brought this level of passion to a Grand Slam, he’d come back with a nice shiny trophy.

ANDY MURRAY, NORMALLY not the most gregarious of spirits, showed his human side by breaking down in a post-match TV interview on Sunday.

The British number one had just won his Davis Cup match against Gilles Muller of Luxembourg, in front of his home Scottish crowd, when he was pulled aside for an interview with Eurosport.

He managed to keep his composure for a minute or so but eventually the adoration of the crowd got too much for him.

“I don’t get the chance to come here very often,” he choked, “so … I’m not going to say any more … I’m done.”

It was Murray’s first serious match in his home country since 2006. His 6-4 6-3 6-1 victory takes Britain into the September promotion play-off against Hungary at home, possibly in Scotland again.
