Wimbledon champion Andy Murray fought to hold back tears on Wednesday after being awarded the ceremonial freedom of his Scottish home town, Sterling.
"It feels good to be home," said Murray, his voice cracking with emotion, during a ceremony at his former school, Dunblane High.
The 26-year-old was seen to pause and wipe his eyes several times during his speech, as a crowd including local officials, his parents, and girlfriend Kim Sears looked on.
"I'm going to keep this very short because there's a good chance I'll get emotional," he said.
