Double Grand Slam tennis champion Andy Murray was given the chance to shoot some hoops with one of his idols, Luol Deng, as the world famous sports stars hit the court in Miami.
As part of Standard Life’s ‘Mastering Your Dreams’ campaign, former Miami Heat season ticket holder Murray, the current world No.2 and reigning Olympic champion, took time out from his gruelling training schedule ahead of the recent Miami Open to meet his fellow 2012 GB Olympian Deng.
The pair talked about their dreams and aspirations for the future in their respective sports, as well as discovering they have a mutual love for Premier League side Arsenal.
Deng put the Scot through some free throws, the half-court challenge and explained Steph Curry’s shooting technique, whilst 2012 US Open champion Murray taught him some racket skills.
‘When Andy Met Luol Deng’ is the first in a series that shows Murray meeting sports people he admires for their personal commitment to giving all it takes to master their dreams.
