Murray out to defend his crown
Andy Murray will be looking to build on a stunning performance at London 2012 as he defends his Olympic tennis crown in Rio.
Four years ago, the British number 1 defeated Roger Federer to lift the Olympic title on home soil. He followed that up in 2013 by becoming the first British male in 77 years to win Wimbledon. It was the second Grand Slam victory of his career, after the 2012 US Open.
Murray, who also inspired Great Britain to Davis Cup victory in 2015, began 2016 with defeat to Novak Djokovic in the final of the Australian Open, just a week before the birth of his daughter Sophia.
Between fatherhood, a chance for more Grand Slam glory and his Olympic title defence, it's sure to be a memorable year for the Scot.
