STARSTRUCK: Jamie and Colin with players

BRITISH tennis star Jamie Murray is mad about padel.

Players at the Chelsea Harbour Club in London got a surprise when he rocked up with doubles player Colin Fleming and played in the Tuesday night social.

Founder of British Padel Tom Murray told the Olive Press: “Jamie is an inspiration to us all and his involvement in our sport does wonders for the popularity and visibility of padel.

“Not only is he becoming a useful padel player, his entire team are now getting hooked and they are all tremendous ambassadors for us here in the UK, and particularly in Scotland.”

The sport, created in Mexico, is the fastest growing in Spain, and is spreading across Europe thanks to its popularity among expats.
