Two-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray has been sent a special NBA jersey from the Miami Heat.

The 26-year-old Brit, who won the US Open in 2012 and Wimbledon last summer, posted an image of the jersey on his official Twitter account, along with the message: "Thanks @MiamiHEAT for the special jersey. Good luck down the stretch and trying for a 3-peat. @NBA #LETSGOHEAT"

The jersey is extra special for Murray because it has the number '77' on it - in honour of the day he won Wimbledon: July 7.

Murray, who also won a gold medal at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, is a keen basketball fan and has been to watch the Heat in the past. He even received a shout-out from LeBron James on the eve of his Wimbledon final against Novak Djokovic.

"Basketball is a sport I really like," Murray told reporters last year. "I watch it a lot. I never played it when I was growing up and I am terrible at it."

Even if he is terrible at basketball, at least he can now look the part by wearing his new Miami Heat jersey.
