Game, set and match for Murray?

Andy Murray and his waxwork


Tennis ace Andy Murray was seeing double instead of playing doubles when he came across his new waxwork model.

The lookalike was so similar to the British number one, some people were left wondering which one was the dummy!

The waxwork will be part of a tennis game at London's Madame Tussauds, where you get to be the umpire.

The 20-year-old has injured his wrist and hasn't said yet whether he'll play in the big tennis championship Wimbledon that starts on Monday.

If he plays, Murray is ranked eighth in the competition.

The Murray waxwork is about 10cm taller than the real thing and his mum Judy pointed out another difference: "The kit is really white and doesn't need ironing - that's the main difference."
