British tennis ace Andy Murray was delighted for Wigan Athletic star Shaun Maloney over their FA Cup triumph.

Maloney and Murray played tennis together growing up in Scotland and the Wigan midfielder was chuffed to learn his compatriot – back to World No.2 this week – had tweeted about his Wembley triumph.
