Andy Murray has got engaged to his long-term girlfriend Kim Sears, his agent confirmed on Wednesday night.

The Wimbledon champion, 27, proposed to Sears, 25, with an "expensive diamond ring" last week, according to the Mirror.

Murray met Sears in 2005 and have been together ever since, apart from a short break in 2010. They live together in Surrey and she is a regular in the crowd at his matches.

Murray has yet to mention his engagement on his Twitter account and is currently en-route to the Philippines:

Off to the Philippines for the first time today, should be a fun trip... Anyone got some suggestions for first time tourists in Manila?

Murray met his future fiancee at the US Open in 2005, where she was travelling with her father, a tennis coach.

Sears has been at Murray's side as he won the men's singles title at Wimbledon, BBC Sports Personality of the Year, and collected an OBE from the Queen.

The news emerged just hours after Murray sacked two long serving members of his coaching team.

Earlier this year he denied he was getting married, after joking about it during a Q&A with fans.
