Andy Murray has revealed he is pain-free and could return to action in time for a possible appearance at Wimbledon in July.

The two-time Wimbledon champion has not played since the Australian Open and has since undergone a second hip operation.

Murray had previously announced he was going to retire but appeared to go back on that decision ahead of his second surgery.

Speaking at the London Marathon, where he fired the starting pistol for the elite men's race, the US Open and double Olympic champion said: "There's no pain any more. I'm happy, pain-free and enjoying my life.

"I've been hitting a few balls from a stationary position. I'm still quite a long way from testing it properly, running around a court.

"I just have to see what happens. I don't feel any pressure that I need to come back but if my body feels good and I'm pain-free then I'll give it a go."
