Andy Murray Gets Poked In The Face By Excited Fan After Leaving Restaurant With Kim Sears (PICTURES)

Andy Murray may have won the Wimbledon men's final but now he's got a new challenge on his hand; avoiding overzealous autograph hunters.

The British tennis champion was poked in the face by one such fan as he left a London restaurant with his girlfriend Kim Sears on Monday.

Even his lightening quick reactions couldn't stop him from being hit as he was ushered through a crowd of well-wishers outside the Nobu Berkley restaurant in Mayfair.

Murray is currently getting used to even greater interest in his personal life. Earlier in the day, he refused to open up to 'This Morning' host Holly Willoughby after she probed him about proposing to his long-term girlfriend.

Willoughby asked the Wimbledon star if he planned to get down on one knee to his partner of eight years, but Murray told her: "I only met you about ten minutes ago so I wouldn't be telling you first."
