Andy Murray has appointed Ivan Lendl as his coach for a third time, reuniting with the man who guided him to all three of his Grand Slam crowns.

The former world No 1, who has been searching for a coach since splitting from Jamie Delgado in December, first began working with the eight-time Grand Slam champion in 2012.

The Scot won his first Slam under Lendl at the US Open in 2012 before ending Britain’s 77-year wait for a home Wimbledon men’s singles champion the following year.

The duo split in 2014 but reunited two years later, shortly before Murray clinched his second Wimbledon title.

He ended the season as world No 1 after a string of titles – he also won his second successive Olympic singles crown – but hip problems began the following year and in November 2017 Lendl again left the team.
