2012 US Open champion Andy Murray

He's Britain's finest tennis player since Fred Perry in the 1930s, but there are some things about 2012 US Open and Olympic champion Andy Murray that you might not know, or perhaps just need reminding of.

Firstly, Andy has a middle name, Barron, which you don't hear very often.

Secondly, Andy Barron Murray is not English, he's Scottish.

He was born in Glasgow (in the southwestern part of Scotland) and grew up in Dunblane, situated midway between Glasgow and Edinburgh, and very close to Stirling.

William Wallace, subject of Mel Gibson's film Braveheart, was also from the Stirling area.

Over the centuries, there have been many conflicts between the Scottish and English, many of whom still don't get on.
