Tennis star Andy Murray's message to fearful fans

By Lynsey Bews

Andy Murray said he understands if British fans decide not to travel to the Davis Cup final in Belgium due to the ongoing security alert in Brussels.

The British team arrived in Ghent on Monday ahead of the historic tie, which is due to start on Friday.

About 1,000 British fans are expected to travel to Belgium for the three-day event, with many thought to be staying in Brussels.

Speaking at a press conference, Murray said: "Obviously I understand if people make another decision because of what's been happening in Brussels. But here in Ghent, everything seems fine. It's very quiet. Yeah, I hope as many fans can travel over as possible to give us the best support."
