Olympic and Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has been chosen to carry the flag for Team GB at Friday's Rio 2016 opening ceremony.

The 29-year-old was picked ahead of the likes of boxer Nicola Adams and rower Katherine Grainger.

Murray, who inspired Great Britain to the Davis Cup in November 2015, is the first tennis player to get the honour.

As well as individual gold, the Scot also won doubles silver alongside Laura Robson at the London 2012 Games.
