Andy Murray has revealed he is pain-free and could return to action in time for a possible appearance at Wimbledon in July.

The two-time Wimbledon champion has not played since the Australian Open and has since undergone a second hip operation.

Murray had previously announced he was going to retire, but appeared to go back on that decision ahead of his second surgery.

Speaking at the Virgin Money London Marathon, where he was to fire the starting pistol for the elite men’s race, the US Open and double Olympic champion told BBC1: “There’s no pain any more. I’m happy, pain-free and enjoying my life.

“I’ve been hitting a few balls from a stationary position. I’m still quite a long way from testing it properly, running around a court.

“I just have to see what happens. I don’t feel any pressure that I need to come back but if my body feels good and I’m pain-free then I’ll give it a go.”

Murray made the emotional announcement on the eve of the Australian Open that this year would be his last on the circuit.

He said that he hoped to retire after Wimbledon, but also admitted that that may not be in his control given how bad his hip was.

The Scot was then eliminated from the tournament Down Under after he was beaten by Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain in a five-set thriller.

After going two sets down, Murray battled back to take it to a decider, but he couldn't complete the stunning comeback as Agut took the final set 6-2.

Every tennis fan will be hoping the former number one can have his emotional goodbye in England and at Wimbledon, and it seems like Murray himself is confident it can happen.
