Wimbledon champion Andy Murray was honoured at the GQ Men Of The Year Awards ceremony on Tuesday night in London. The Scot, who was unable to attend as he is through to the fourth round of the US Open in New York, received a Man of the Year GQ Award.

“I am proud to have won a GQ Man of the Year Award, for Outstanding Achievement,” said Murray. “I'm currently out playing in the US Open in NYC, so couldn't attend the awards tonight in London, but happy to have won and thanks to all at GQ Awards.”

In its 16th year, the Covent Garden ceremony brings together the best in film, music, TV, books, politics and more. The Men Of The Year Issue is on sale 4 September. Murray was featured in the July issue of GQ, photographed ‘on fire’ on a pyrotechnic set in Miami by award-winning American photographer Art Streiber.

In the past 12 months, Murray has been one of Great Britain’s highest achieving sportsmen. The 26-year-old Scot won his first Grand Slam title at the US Open last year (d. Djokovic), finished runner-up at the Australian Open (l. to Djokovic) in January and became the first British male champion at Wimbledon in 77 years, again defeating Novak Djokovic.

Murray has already been honoured with an OBE for service to tennis, the Laureus World Breakthrough of the Year Award and UK Royal Mail issued commemorative stamps.
