Andy Murray has made a desperate plea for his wedding ring to be returned after it was stolen during his time training at Indian Wells.

Murray married Kim Sears in 2005 and like many tennis players, removes his wedding ring when he trains or plays.

Many players wear necklaces with the ring attached, but Murray has always attached the ring to one of his laces and did so when he took part in a practice session ahead of his opener in the Indian Wells tournament against Frenchman Adrian Mannarino.

However, Murray took to social media to explain how his wedding ring went missing and asked for 'help'.

"Last night after dinner in Indian Wells, I got back in the car to go back to the hotel and it didn't smell great. I'd left my tennis shoes in there ... it's been like 38-39 degrees so the shoes are damp, sweaty and smelly," Murray said in the video.

"I decided when I got back to the hotel that the shoes needed some air, I needed to dry them out a bit ... I have no balcony in my room and didn't want to leave them in my room to stink the room out.

"So I thought I'm going to leave the shoes under the car ... overnight. When I got back to the car in the morning the shoes were gone. I had to go to a local pro shop to buy different shoes to what I normally wear ... which isn't the end of the world but not ideal.

"I was preparing for my practice when my physio said to me 'where's your wedding ring?' And I was like 'oh no' .... So yeah, my ring has been stolen as well. 

Murray admitted the incident hasn't gone down well with his wife and pleaded to anyone that had information to help recover his wedding ring.

"Needless to say I'm in the bad books at home so I want to try and find it," he said.

"If anyone could share this or may have any clue where it may be, that would be very helpful."

Social media has fun with Andy Murray mistake

Murray's message certainly did the rounds as fans listened to the Scottish champions plea to help him recover the ring.

Many started the quest to finding his ring, while others were wondering how the three-time grand slam champion lost his wedding ring.
