The tennis star will make his “appearance” in the classic comic’s Wimbledon special.
Wimbledon tennis champion Andy Murray is to become guest editor for traditional British comic The Beano, with a starring role within its pages to boot.
The one-off comic strip plays on Murray’s old reputation as a tenacious but impatient tennis player.
Regular troublemaker Dennis the Menace steps in to help Andy up his game and use his emotions in a controlled manner rather than unleashing them indiscriminately.
“Olympic Gold was my proudest moment; becoming the first male British Wimbledon winner for 77 years was amazing,” writes Murray in his introductory editor’s letter. “This might be my greatest title yet. Andy Murray – editor of The Beano!”
Plastered all over the front of The Beano’s June 28 issue, on sale from June 25 in Britain and celebrated with a supporter’s poster, the World #5 defends his title at the All-England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, whose men’s singles final is scheduled to take place on July 6. — AFP Relaxnews
