Murray brothers make Olympic team

Jamie and Andy Murray

Britain's top tennis brothers Andy and Jamie Murray WILL be competing with Team GB at the Olympics this summer.

Andy, the British number one, will compete in the singles event before teaming up with Jamie in the doubles.

It will be the first Olympics either of them have taken part in and their mum has said they're really excited about the prospect of playing in Beijing.

She said: "It's a real dream for them to play together at something like this and they are looking forward to it."

Simon Clegg, from Team GB 2008, said he thought the brothers would gain a lot from their Olympic experience.

"Team GB has enjoyed success in the tennis competition in the past, and with Andy and Jamie we have one of best chances of achieving in this event," he said.
