Andy Murray has revealed that his gruelling journey back from serious injury will be the subject of a new film.

'Andy Murray: Resurfacing' will be available on Amazon Prime Video from November 29 and documents the two-time Wimbledon champion's eventful last two years, which has seen him almost retire due to a chronic hip issue before making a winning comeback following a major operation.

Murray claimed a first ATP Tour singles title for more than two-and-a-half years with victory over Stan Wawrinka in the final of the European Open in Antwerp last month.

Murray, also twice winner of an Olympic gold medal, underwent hip resurfacing surgery at the end of January - an operation which no singles player had attempted to come back from.

The 32-year-old, who has just celebrated the birth of a third child, a boy, with wife Kim, is currently taking a break until the Davis Cup finals in Madrid next month.

The feature-length documentary will give an inside access to the player's recovery - with physical, mental and emotional challenges overcome along the way.

"I knew I was at a critical point in my career," Murray said.

"At times it felt like I was letting people down by not being able to perform on court, and I wanted to give them an insight into what I was going through. I wanted to show the ups and downs of professional sport.

"The film will take you on a journey through what were some of the lowest, most difficult periods of my life both physically and mentally, and will hopefully show and inspire viewers, that with the right mindset and work ethic, anything is possible."
