Andy Murray Live 2017

Andy Murray has launched an online auction of rare tennis memorabilia as part of a charity fundraising drive.

The two-time Grand Slam winner announced the move ahead of Andy Murray Live, which will see the Scot play Roger Federer in an exhibition match in Glasgow.

Items up for grabs include a signed racket used by Ivan Lendl, tickets for the 2018 Ryder Cup, Anthony Joshua's signed boxing glove and a Little Mix collectible.

Murray said: "Last year's Andy Murray Live raised £305,000 for charity and our plans for this year are even more ambitious. By taking part in the auction you will be supporting this year's two charities - children's charity Unicef and Glasgow-based Sunny-sid3up. I really appreciate your support."

A competition will also run which will see the winner pick up a signed, framed racket used by Murray during this year's Wimbledon Championships.

The online auction will run from Monday October 23 until Monday November 6, with all proceeds going to charity.
