Judy Murray posts pic of the head that spoiled her Fringe


JUDY Murray has posted a picture of the back of the head of the man who spoiled her trip to the Edinburgh festival.

The TV star and tennis coach was in the audience at one of the festival’s many comedy shows but had her view obscured by a tall man sitting in front of her.

The 56-year-old had intended to watch Susie Youssef at the Assembly Rooms but complained that she “couldn’t see her” because of the man in front.

She uploaded the picture with the caption: “Went to watch comedienne Susie Youssef at Assembly Rooms. Couldn’t see her. #worstseatinthehouse @EdFringe.”

The photo shows her poor view, with just the back of the man’s head and grey hair to look at as she sits five rows back from the stage.

The man’s head towers above others watching the comedy performance and even his broad shoulders obscure part of her view.

The tennis coach’s Twitter followers were quick to sympathise with her plight and shared their own opinions on the matter.

@Bingbangbush wrote: “There should be a wee folk at front and big dudes at back rule for gigs #weedudesfirstworldproblems.”

@LouiseWBush1 said: “I’m with you Judy. Tall people should be made to stand at the back. #5’4″isnotshort.”

And @LorraineJohnson commented: “Happens to me too. I always get someone tall or with massive hair in front of me, usually after curtain up so can’t move.”

Judy has been spotted with Scottish comedian, Rory Bremner, earlier in the day who served up his best Andy Murray impression to the mother of the tennis hero.

She was in Edinburgh just days after Andy defended his Olympic gold medal by beating Argentine, Juan Martin Del Potro in a four set battle in Rio De Janeiro.
