ANDY Murray is no longer Scottish. Andy Murray is from the Home Counties. Wimbledon is in the Home Counties. Andy Murray is the local boy making good.

Tom Wells has news for Sun readers in the non-Scottish edition:

HOME Counties tennis maestro Andy Murray lifted England’s sporting gloom last night as he stormed into the Wimbledon semi-finals.

I say, old bean. Well played!

Days after the nation’s footballers crashed disastrously out of the World Cup, the Surrey-based Brit smashed his way to a mouth-watering last-four showdown with World Number One Rafael Nadal.

Andy Murray is England’s lion:

And as he glanced up into the stands his proud mum and biggest fan Judy – watching with his on-off girlfriend Kim Sears – imitated his lion-like bellow.

One lion on his chest…
