Rio Olympics 2016: Andy Murray to be Team GB flag bearer

Olympic and Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has been chosen to carry the flag for Team GB at Friday's Rio 2016 opening ceremony. The 29-year-old was picked ahead of the likes of boxer Nicola Adams and rower Katherine Grainger. Murray, who inspired Great Britain to the Davis Cup in November, is the first tennis player to fill the role. "To lead out Team GB will be an incredible honour, the biggest in sport," he said.
