Andy Murray has tweeted a picture of himself in his hospital bed following back surgery.

The Wimbledon champion underwent surgery to address a disc problem in his lower back.

Murray tweeted: "First thing I said when I came round was 'did I win?'"

The world number three will not play again this season but hopes to begin pre-season training in Miami in November.

Murray lost the Australian Open final in January but became the first British men's singles winner at Wimbledon in 76 years two months ago.

The 26-year-old was knocked out at the quarter-final stage at the US Open by Stanislas Wawrinka earlier this month.
