Andy Murray was “back in the good books” with his wife on Thursday when her wedding ring and stinky shoes were returned to him.
Murray said on Instagram that his shoes got so badly stuck in his car that he decided to leave them under the vehicle outside his hotel in California overnight to help him out.
When he went back to pick up the shoes he found that they were hung along with the ring despite their laces nowhere to be found, prompting Murray to seek help in recovering the missing items.
Murray, who married Kim Sears in 2015, said in a video posted to Instagram that the ring was returned after calling hotel security.
“A little update for everyone. Would you believe it?” said Murray before taking a big sniff of the shoes.
“They still smell great but the shoes are back, the wedding ring is back, and I’m back in the good books.”
Three-time Grand Slam champion Murray will face France’s Adrian Mannarino in the first round of the Indian Wells tournament in Southern California on Friday.
