Tennis ace Andy Murray is to split from his coach Ivan Lendl.

Their two year partnership brought Andy his first big titles - Olympic gold, the US Open and the Wimbledon title last summer - ending Britain's 77 year wait for a male champion.

"I'm eternally grateful to Ivan for all his hard work," said Andy. "We've learned a lot as a team and it will be of benefit in the future."

Lendl said it was "fantastic" working with Andy, who is "a first-class guy".

Andy will be defending his Miami Masters title next week.
