Andy Murray – who won gold for Great Britain at London 2012 – has revealed he thinks Scotland will vote No in the referendum next month.
But the tennis champ has revealed he would play tennis for an independent Scotland if the country surprises him and votes Yes.
The 2013 Wimbledon champion has so far remained silent on how the Scottish vote will affect him.
He now says that whatever way the vote goes, his future would be clear either way – and that he would be ready to represent Scotland at the Rio Olympics in 2016 if the country votes accordingly.
“If it happened where, if Scotland became independent, then I imagine I would be playing for Scotland,” he said.
“I haven’t thought that much about that yet because I don’t think it’s looking too likely that it’s going to happen.
“But if it did happen, then it would be pretty much the first time in my life that I would have ever represented Scotland.
“Ever since I started travelling to tournaments since I was 11 years old I played under Great Britain.”
