Andy Murray has broken his silence on the Scottish Independence referendum to throw his support behind the "Yes" campaign.
"Huge day for Scotland today!" Murray wrote on Twitter. "No campaign negativity last few days totally swayed my view on it. excited to see the outcome. lets do this!"
The Scot, who lives in London, has received overwhelming support from the Twitteratti but not everyone is quite so positive...

So Andy Murray's a Yes. Going to be funny watching the southern middle/upper class Tory housewives booing him at Wimbledon next year.— Adam Bennett (@adbennoEFC) September 18, 2014
Fair play to Andy Murray, it's multi-millionaires living in Surrey who have most to lose from a Yes vote today ...... #indyref— Kevin Schofield (@schofieldkevin) September 18, 2014
At least we won't have to fake cheer Andy Murray at Wimbledon if Yes win— Jon Owen (@Jon1986) September 18, 2014
@andy_murray is in many ways the archetypal Yes voter - young, male and living in London...— Jeff Breslin (@jeffbres) September 18, 2014
@andy_murray I can hate you even more now. Get the fuck out of Surrey— Dave (@theravehoney) September 18, 2014
Andy Murray seems pretty keen to lift the lid siding with the Yes campaign.. did you tweet that from your mansion in the U.S or England pal?— Adam Vogt (@AdamVogt) September 18, 2014
@andy_murray Extremely ill advised move - polling day is sacrosanct. Should have had the courage of your convictions long ago. Disappointed.— Andrew Clarke (@glasgowirish) September 18, 2014
Andy Murray announces support for 'YES' on the *final* day.
Yet he can't vote because he resides in Surrey.September 18, 2014
@andy_murray piss off you boring bastard— Nick McPartland (@Nick_McP) September 18, 2014
Cowardly cunning from Andy Murray. Comes out as 'Yes', but only after it can't be reported. Salmond denied coup, Murray saves Scots image.— Mister Spleen (@MisterSpleen68) September 18, 2014

@andy_murray Mr Murray I respect your belatedly expressed view. Do us a favour. Never again wrap yourself in my national flag. Hypocrisy.— J.S. Lindley-French (@FrencLindley) September 18, 2014
