Sir Andy Murray has shown off his ball skills as he launched a partnership which will see 20,000 meal kits donated to UK families in need.
The Scots tennis star took time out of French Open preparations to take on Old El Paso’s #MessFreeChallenge on his Instagram and Twitter accounts, having been nominated by friend and fellow court star Nick Kyrgios.
Murray, with a tortilla in each hand, managed to complete some impressive keepy-uppies with a tennis ball, managing not to spill a drop.

As promised.. a more difficult #MessFreeChallenge than @k1ngkyrg1os effort… 🌯😁🎾🌯 As part of the challenge I’m also partnering with @oldelpasouk to donate 20,000 meal kits via @fareshareuk for UK families in need. Time for @iamgaelmonfils @elisvitolina @heatherwatson92 and @leon.smithtennis to see if they can top my effort and show me what they can do… #TortillaPockets #OldElPaso #MessFreeChallenge #ad 🔥🌯🌯🌯🌯🔥
He said: “The Old El Paso #MessFreeChallenge is a fun initiative, and I’m looking forward to seeing what the tennis world comes up with – my challenge was certainly a lot tougher than Nick’s!?!
“It was important to me that we were able to give back as part of the challenge, so together we’ve donated 20,000 meal kits to FareShare, which will be distributed to families in need throughout the UK.”
For the #MessFreeChallenge in Australia, Old El Paso partnered with the Nick Kyrgios Foundation to donate 10,000 Meal Kits to Foodbank Australia, with one additional meal kit donated for every share up to 10,000 of the Nick Kyrgios challenge video on Instagram Stories.
Murray served up a challenge to fellow players Gael Monfils, Elina Svitolina and Heather Watson, as well as Davis Cup captain Leon Smith to take part in the challenge themselves.
The Dunblane-born star is set to take to make his first appearance at the French Open for over three years when it kicks off on Sunday.
