Tennis champ Andy Murray has said he will switch to a vegan diet when he retires.

The British No.1 took to Twitter to answer questions from fans.

Murray, who is a vocal dog lover, was asked if he would ever stop eating meat, and go plant-based like rival Novak Djokovic.

'For sure'

Murray replied: "When I finish playing, I’ll try it for sure."

The Scot - who revealed he'll be back playing 'very soon' after taking a break for surgery on his hip - was asked which is his favorite Grand Slam.

He replied: "That’s like having to choose between your four best friends to be best man at your wedding…love them all but I’ve known Wimbledon the longest."
