Andy Murray’s career is drawing to a close after he admitted he no longer wants to play through the pain of a chronic hip problem.

At an emotional press conference ahead of the Australian Open, the Scot revealed next week’s first-round match against Roberto Bautista Agut could be his last, although he is hoping to retire after Wimbledon.

Here, Press Association Sport looks at his career in pictures.
