HILARIOUS footage has captured the moment Andy Murray came face to face with himself – by interviewing an impressionist acting as the Wimbledon champion.
Josh Berry has gained a large following on YouTube for his impressions of tennis stars such as Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal, but his impersonation of Andy Murray is particularly impressive.
In a video posted on his Facebook page, Andy interviews ‘himself’ to ask how his own preparations for Wimbledon are going as Josh responds in the style of the Scottish tennis star.
Andy shared the video on Facebook yesterday with the caption: “Took talking to myself to a whole new level today.”
The 30-second clip starts with Andy pretending to be an interviewer as he says: “Hi everyone, I’m here with Andy Murray. Andy, how you doing? “
Josh, touches his face with his right hand as Andy does when he’s being interviewed before responding: “Yeah you know, I’m feeling great just now, I’m really happy to be preparing for Wimbledon, it’s been, yeah it’s been great.”
The real Andy then asks: “And how have preparations for Wimbledon been going? You feeling good?”
Still touching his face and speaking in Murray’s Scottish accent, Josh answers: “Yeah, you know I’ve been trying mostly to sort of ‘em, you know, work on my voice a little bit as well as the tennis so yeah, it’s been going okay.
“I’ve got a view injuries but you know, I should be alright by the time Monday comes around.”
Andy ends by saying: “You’ve done some good work on the voice there, well done.”
Facebook users have been quick to react to the funny footage.
Patricia John wrote: “Andy is not only a great sport, good sportsman, but also has a great sense of humor – he can laugh at himself! Go, Andy!”
Simon Pratt commented: “Haha. Hilarious. I love the moment Andy thinks, ‘Do I really touch my face that much in interviews?’”
Whilst Joanne Leavers added: “Who says Andy Murray doesn’t have a sense of humour? As for boring tennis? Have you ever watched a whole Andy Murray match? Anything but boring #teammurray.”
