ANDY Murray has proudly shared an X-ray showing his new metal hip, following surgery in London.
The two time Wimbledon champion posted on Instagram this morning showing photos of him lying in a hospital bed.
He also posted an X-ray image in which his metal hip socket can clearly be made out.
The star, who is due to retire as a direct result of the hip pain he has endured for years, posted: “I underwent a hip resurfacing surgery in London yesterday morning…feeling a bit battered and bruised just now.
“But hopefully that will be the end of my hip pain in I now have a metal hip as you can see in the second photo.”
He added: “And I look like I’ve got a bit of a gut in photo one.”
Murray can be seen lying on a hospital bed after a successful surgery smiling at the camera.
