Andy Murray returned home to Dunblane for the first time as a Grand Slam champion. The newly crowned US Open champion made a special visit to the place where he grew up this afternoon. The 25-year-old was greeted by thousands who came out in appreciation of their new hero.
“To have been in my hometown today and to have had that reception is something that will live with me for a very long time. Thank you so much,” posted Murray via facebook.
With over 15,000 well-wishers lining the streets, Murray arrived back into the town in an open-top bus, then proceeded to walk the streets meeting his fans and showing off his Olympic medals. He later hit with some local kids at the Dunblane Sports Club, the site where he first learned the sport.
