We all know Andy Murray quenched Great Britain’s 77 year drought, during which one of their countrymen failed to capture the elusive Gentleman’s Final at Wimbledon, Sunday morning in thrilling fashion (one of the most exciting, title-clinching games in recent memory).

Murray defeated Serbia’s Novak Djokovic in straight sets (6-4, 7-5, 6-4) to bring the Gentlemen’s Singles cup back to England, a feat that hasn’t been accomplished since Fred Perry in 1936.

But we all knew that…right? I know what you’re probably thinking: “Tell me something I don’t know about Andy Murray.” Well, I’m a people pleaser. Always have been, always will be. And luckily for you all, I have compiled the five most interesting things we don’t know about our reigning Wimbledon champ, Andy Murray. Cheers mates.

1. Andy Murray will reportedly give his Wimbledon winnings to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.

Andy’s a good man. Although this is certainly refreshing, it’s not too jaw dropping–Murray is set to make about $150M this year in endorsements.


2. Andy Murray’s girl is a dime piece.

I think this one is more shocking than him donating his Wimbledon earnings to charity. Let’s be real here — Murray is no Christiano Ronaldo. He could go on to win 20 more Wimbledons, and Kim Sears will still be his greatest victory. I can’t really complain either, the good news for us is they show her on TV about 50 times per match.


3. Andy Murray doesn’t drink.

Respectable, I suppose, but after being the first Brit to win at Wimbledon in almost 80 years — I feel like a little bubbly is only fitting. Live a little Andy, you deserve it ol’ chap!


4. Andy Murray sold his red Ferrari for a Volkswagen Polo.

Andy said he felt “like a bit of a prat” driving his red ‘Rari, so he sold it for a VW Polo. No comment, Andy. No comment.


5. Andy Murray eats more sushi than a sorority girl.

Word on the street is Andy once ate 46 pieces in one sitting. Legendary.
