Andy Murray donned a wig and glasses to serve ice cream to unsuspecting fans in a parlour in Cincinnati, USA


We must have missed the memo that said August is the month for sports stars dressing in disguise. First of all, Cristiano Ronaldo donned a beard to surprise fans on the streets of Spain, and now Andy Murray has hidden his identity behind a wig and glasses to serve up ice cream to unsuspecting punters in the USA.

Looking like a slightly nerdy ice cream parlour employee, Andy wasn’t scooping for long until a vigilant fan, Julie Boniface, rumbled him.

Her companion Amy Boniface tweeted a picture of the moment Andy took off the unflattering wig and revealed his true identity.

The Boniface’s tweets have gone slightly viral since they appeared earlier today, and they show that Andy – whose deadpan expression has led to him being accused of being miserable in the past – definitely does have a fun side.

Andy is in the States to compete in the Cincinnati Masters, where he’s due to play the excellently-named US tennis player Mardy Fish in a week’s time.

Andy also has plenty of other things to be happy about – he recently announced that he and his wife Kim Sears are expecting their first baby.
