US Open champion Andy Murray returns to Britain after touching down at Heathrow
Andy Murray has arrived back in Britain following Monday night's victory in the US Open.
The British number one touched down at Heathrow's Terminal 5 at 9am this morning and was greeted by excited British Airways staff and cheering fans.
Murray, who beat Novak Djokovic over five sets at Flushing Meadows to clinch his first Grand Slam, was with girlfriend Kim Sears as he posed for pictures with holidaymakers and airport staff as he collected his luggage.
The Scot became the first British winner of a Grand Slam for 76 years and since his win on Monday has been on a whirlwind tour. Following his victory he dined at New York's Hakkasan restaurant with his entourage where a bill of £4,000 was racked up.
Admitting he had got little sleep, the 25-year-old appeared on various American breakfast television programmes on Tuesday morning before posing with the trophy in Central Park.
Murray can expect another round of television interviews back in the UK as the media and marketing men clamour for a piece of the world number three. There is a parade of Scotland's Olympic athletes in Glasgow on Friday, although at this stage it is not known if Murray, who won a gold and silver medal at London 2012, will participate.
