Andy Murray pays it forward

"True charity is the desire to be useful to others with no thought of recompense". Emanuel Swedenborg

It was hard not to get carried away with the feeling of patriotism that swept the country yesterday after Andy Murray's Wimbledon victory. His 6-4, 7-5, 6-4 defeat of Novak Djokovic was well deserved.

However it was today's news that Murray has reportedly donated his 1.6 million prize fund to a cancer charity that really left me with a warm, fuzzy feeling inside. (Murray is yet to confirm this publicly).

Murray last month donated £73,000 to The Royal Marsden Hospital, his winnings from securing his third Queens Club Title. This hospital had been treating his bests friend Ross Hutchins for Hodgkins Lymphoma.

The feeling of being the first British man in 77 years to hold the cup at Wimbledon must be overwhelming but combine that with the fact the prize money could potentially transform many lives is truly humbling. What a man.
