US Open champ Andy Murray will pull out all the stops to attend Glasgow's Olympic parade on Friday.

If he makes it he will join stars such as Sir Chris Hoy, Katherine Grainger, Glasgow-born Michael Jamieson, and Neil Fachie in a procession from Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, through the city centre to George Square.

Murray won a gold medal at the London Olympics just a few weeks ago.

After his victory in New York on Monday night he said: "It's a shame I missed the parade in London. I would like to try to go back for the one in Glasgow. It would be nice.

"I'd like to go home to see my family and just be around them. I obviously haven't got to see them that much and they've always supported me.

"I will make time to go back to see them but I don't know whether it will be this weekend or not.

"But I would also like to get a few days to myself just to take everything in and just be normal for a few days before doing any of that.

Asked if he was prepared for the reception when he got home, Murray said: "I don't know if you can necessarily prepare for it.

"I think being around the Olympics and seeing how the nation came together, everyone was just right and it was a nice thing to be involved in."
