Wimbledon champion Andy Murray was held up on his way to receive an OBE at Buckingham Palace - by a random drugs test.

The Scot got an unexpected knock on the door just as he was sprucing himself up for his royal engagement, and tweeted that he was in the middle of a drugs test and was going to be late.

Murray, who's recovering fromn back surgery, duly received his honour from Prince William.
