The two-time Olympic gold medalist added, “And then I was going to file a police report to try to get them back or to increase my chance of getting them back, and then anyway I went and spoke to the hotel and explained to them that that’s what I was going to do. They then took all my details down… They took me out to the car park and asked exactly where I was I parked and then I asked them if they could look at the cameras.”

All’s well that ends well

The missing-ring saga ended when one of the employees at the hotel found the ring. Apparently, one of the employees picked up the shoe before they noticed the ring near it. Nonetheless, it was great for Andy to get the wedding ring back.

The former World No. 1 added, “And then yeah, about an hour later they turned up. One of the employees at the hotel found them in their lost and found. So yeah, thankfully they managed to get them back, which was good. I was told that someone from the hotel picked it (the shoes) up and then they didn’t see it in the lost and found when I asked for it. That’s what they told me.”

He spoke to the media regarding this after his opening-round win over Adrian Mannarino in the Californian desert. Murray beat the Frenchman in straight sets. The British star faces a threat in his next round when he will be up against Spanish teenage sensation Carlos Alcaraz. It promises to be an exciting tie and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top.
