Two-time Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has confirmed he will join the BBC’s expert team of pundits and commentators at Wimbledon 2018.

Murray, absent from this year’s event after failing to recover sufficient match fitness following a serious hip operation, confirmed the move on social media, saying: “Live in the BBC studio tomorrow with Tim Henman and trying my hand at commentary on Wednesday.... what could possibly go wrong... ”

Murray is set to join Sue Barker and Tim Henman in the studio, before making his BBC commentary debut for one of the quarter-final matches.

Philip Bernie, head of TV Sport at the BBC said: “Having Andy Murray as part of our BBC team is a real coup. While we know he’ll be missing being out there on the courts, it's great to still have him involved in the tournament and his insight will be a great addition to our coverage."
