Andy Murray buys hometown hotel

6:38 am on 26 February 2013

Andy Murray has gone into the hotel business as the new owner of a luxury hotel in his Scottish hometown of Dunblane.

Murray says he wants to give something back to the community in which he grew up, and he plans to refurbish the hotel before re-opening it next year ahead of the 2014 Ryder Cup golf tournament, which is being staged a short drive away at Gleneagles.

Murray's a survivor of the 1996 Dunblane Primary School massacre, in which 16 children and their teacher were gunned down by a local misfit.
