Andy Murray's laid-back star appeal has been recognised by brands the world over.

The now two-time Wimbledon champion inked a four-year deal with sporting giant Under Armour back in 2014 worth an estimated £15m, but beyond sportswear he's also an ambassador for the likes of Jaguar, Standard Life and Unicef.

According to the Sunday Times Rich List Murray's backing from brands has helped him accumulate a £58m fortune; something sponsorship consultants claim could double over the next three years thanks to wider media coverage and a "family man" image that has made the tennis star more "marketable".
