ANDY Murray could become one of the top earning British sportsmen of all time following his historic Wimbledon victory, a marketing expert has said.
Murray (26) is likely to land a raft of new sponsorship deals after his win and stands to rake in up to £15m a year.
The Scot was ranked at number 32 in The Sunday Times Sports Rich List 2013 with an estimated fortune of £32m. His victory yesterday earned him £1.6m.
Nigel Currie of sports marketing agency brandRapport, said Murray will be likely to profit from lucrative new contracts.
He said: "It is as a global superstar where the major earnings exist. Murray could secure some really big deals with the biggest brands. He's earning £8-9m off court at the moment. We could see that edging up to £15m."
