Andy Murray is back in the “good books” after finding a wedding ring in his pocket during the US Open, on top of the pile of programmes on a table in his room.

Murray found the ring, which belongs to his wife Kim, just before going on court for his fourth-round match against John Millman, played on Friday. He said: “She was amazed when I said I found her ring. It was quite funny, a nice moment in a tough match. She usually has it on in the tournament but she took it off for this match and I didn’t think it would have been found. She’s very grateful it has now come back.”

In his winning 4-6, 6-4, 6-4, 6-2 victory Murray also claimed he spotted a “huge bird” pecking away at the roof in the night sky.

At the end of a brutal contest with Millman the 11th seed, and British No 1, said he thought the left-hander had missed a shot before finally deciding to check out what was in his sights. Murray, nicknamed “a white light” for his golf ball-throwing celebration on court, said: “I went up and I was looking and I saw this massive bird pecking away at the roof and I was thinking I must have just missed a shot. It was so loud.

“I was looking around to see if there was anything under there to divert the bird’s aim but when I was about eight feet away, a ball would just pop out of the net and end up somewhere in the roof. It was unbelievable.

“So I said: ‘I’m going to go for it now.’ And luckily enough it popped out. I was the first person to have a look and I was just so lucky.”

After the match Murray’s spokesman confirmed the ring had been found.
