Scottish tennis pro Andy Murray has choked on food yet again, this time in Australia.

Andy Murray was dining at a top-restaurant in Melbourne enjoying a meal with family and friends, but choked during the main course.

Similar incidents have happened in restaurants in New York, Paris and Wimbledon causing much embarrassment to himself and his fans.

A friend of Murray says, "Andy always gets through the starter and drinks fine. In fact he annihilates everything in his path. The same goes for most of the main course, but as soon as he gets to the final mouthful Andy chokes."

"I can't explain it - this problem always happens in Paris, Wimbledon, New York and Melbourne. There just seems to be some sort of mental barrier for him."

Andy Murray has vowed to take time off from eating at restaurants in the future to stop the choking problem. However, friends feel more work could be required to stop this from happening in the future.

Despite these problems, tennis insiders have claimed that they're nothing compared to Tim Henman who used to choke on the starter on a regular basis.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
