Practising his serve? Giggling Andy Murray lifts son Teddy, 3, over his head before cosying up to wife Kim during idyllic family holiday to Marbella
Andy Murray put on a joyous display as he lifted his three-year-old son Teddy over his head while enjoying a family holiday in Marbella on Friday.
The tennis player, 35, shared a series of Instagram snaps of the lavish trip as he trained for the Monte-Carlo Masters tournament which kicks off on April 8.
The three-time Grand Slam winner enjoyed some downtime with his wife Kim as the pair beamed for a sweet selfie together.
Kim looked effortlessly chic in a pair of large dark sunglasses and a striped white T-shirt for the snap.
The Scot took some time to soak up the sun on the beach and shared a sweet snap of his son, three, playing with toy cars.

Murray and Kim, who started dating in 2005, have been married for nearly six years following their Dunblane wedding in April 2015.
The couple share Sophia, seven, Edie, five, and Teddy.
He penned: ‘Just finished a great training week/holiday with my team and family at @puenteromanoresort in Marbella. What a great place, thanks so much for looking after us.
‘Now on way to @rolexmontecarlomasters for first time since 2017! Wish me luck’.
Murray has made it into the main-draw of the Monte-Carlo Masters for the first time in six years after three players pulled out.
Rafael Nadal, Carlos Alcaraz and Felix Auger-Aliassime withdrew from the tournament on Tuesday due to injury.
It comes after Andy made a significant change for what is left of his career by leaving his own management agency and joining the company that represents Emma Raducanu.
The Scot has folded the tennis side of his own management business and signed a deal with the ubiquitous IMG, who own three events on the ATP Tour and have large client base in the sport.

Murray set up his own agency 10 years ago, calling it 77 as a nod to the number of years that had elapsed between Fred Perry and himself winning Wimbledon.
In the intervening time the former world No 1 has been voted Sports Personality of the Year three times.
Despite this he has never shown much inclination to maximise his off-court earning power, and has generally been less active on the commercial front than other top players, preferring to limit his number of promotional obligations.
IMG, as has been shown with Raducanu, are known for enthusiastically pursuing earning opportunities, so it will be interesting to see if he can be persuaded to do so in these twilight years of his career.
Matt Gentry, his long-time manager, will continue to work alongside him.
Murray put in his worst performance of a broadly encouraging season to date when losing in the first round of the Miami Open last week.
