Andy Murray Undergoes Hip Resurfacing Surgery In London (Photos)

Former British World No.1 Andy Murray has undergone a hip resurfacing surgery in London.

Murray posted on Instagram that he hoped it would mean the 'end of my hip pain.'

The 31-year-old announced on the eve of the recent Australian Open that his troubling hip had left him facing up to the prospect of retirement this year.

The three-time grand slam winner was also contemplating whether to have a metal lining inserted into his right hip and a metal cap placed on the top of his femur, creating what is known as the "Birmingham hip" in a final effort to prolong his career.

On Tuesday, Murray posted a picture of him post-op alongside an X-ray with the words: "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.

"I now have a metal hip as you can see in the 2nd photo and I look like I've got a bit of a gut in photo."

The operation was Murray's second on his right hip following surgery in January 2018 which saw him spend most of the year on the sidelines.
