ANDY Murray is one of the few sports stars whose off-field antics rarely hit the headlines.
However the tennis ace has shown his racy side by stripping off and going full-frontal.
Luckily his modesty is preserved by a giggling blonde, who holds a Facebook
“Like’ symbol to spare his blushes.
The nude scene features in a new advert for Murray’s sponsors, Head, and invites fans to
“get closer’ to the British number 1 ahead of this summer’s Wimbledon tournament by signing up to Head’s Facebook page.
The film follows Andy through an ordinary day from breakfast to bedtime, with a series of run-ins with fans along the way.

However, the competiton at the top of world tennis has never been so intense, with rare talents like Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic frustrating Murray’s attempts to win a Major to date.
The latest online campaign by Head is seen as an attempt to showcase Murray’s personality. Friends say he is a popular figure on the tennis scene with a great sense of humour, but that is often lost in his public persona, dominated by on-court strops and monotone after-match interviews.
