LONDON (AFP) – Andy Murray (AP, pic below) is thinking about a career after tennis but it might take quick footwork if he is to grab a job opening he spotted on Wednesday.
After the surprise resignation of Nicola Sturgeon as Scottish First Minister, Murray was quick to test the water.
“Interesting vacancy. Was looking to get into politics when I finish playing,” tweeted the Scottish former Wimbledon champion as he shared a BBC article, adding a winking emoji.
Sturgeon was quick to respond.
“I know I said I wouldn’t endorse anyone as my successor, but…” she tweeted, matching Murray’s winking emoji and adding a rolling-on-the-floor-laughing emoji.
Murray, former world number one and three-time Grand Slam winner, considered retirement in 2019 as he battled hip injuries that have hampered him since 2017. However, the 35-year-old is still on the tour and is currently ranked at 70 in the world.
