Facebook London, Apr 16(ANI): British tennis ace Andy Murray was nearly filmed naked in a shower in the latest installment of an ad campaign by Head Tennis, which makes his rackets.

According to the Sun, Murray had to lather up with soap in a cubicle.

The 23-year-old wore a tiny pair of pants to avoid any drop shots when the cameraman moved in for a close-up, while a female crew member protected his modesty with a comedy foam hand.

“It was all a bit awkward for Andy - luckily the water was warm. He was a bit self-conscious about being soaking wet in his pants in front of the crew,” a source said.

“One of the girls from the crew was in beside him to cover his groin - which made it all the more awkward. But Andy has a lot of experience of sending himself up. He’s game for a laugh and it was great fun on the day,” he added.

The new ad, which follows Murray in a fictional “day in the life” story, launches on June 6 through Facebook. (ANI)
