Wimbledon champ Andy Murray showed he was game for a laugh when comics on BBc2’s Mock The Week served up a volley of gags at his expense during a Sport Relief special.

The normally reserved tennis star is a guest for an edition of the topical comedy show with panellists invited to give him a “thrashing”, while his girlfriend Kim Sears looks on from the audience.

Show regulars Hugh Dennis and Andy Parsons are joined by Milton Jones, Ed Byrne, Holly Walsh and Hal Cruttenden, who take it in turns to come up with comic scenarios involving Murray in two special rounds.

The special edition of the show forms part of the Sport Relief night on the BBC to be broadcast on Friday 21 March.

Mock The Week returns to BBC Two for a new series on June 12.
