Andy Murray and his wife Kim Sears have welcomed a fourth child.

The news comes as it has been shared that the 33-year-old will not play in next week's Dubai Tennis Championships because of a lack of preparation time for the tournament following the baby's arrival.

The couple, who have been married since 2015, are already parents to daughters Sophia, five, and Edie, three, as well as one-year-old son Teddy.

The tennis pro shared: "He's always moving around, and gets motivated by balls all around him. He just wants to throw and chase balls the whole time, whereas the two girls were a little bit more mellow - so it's quite different."
