Andy Murray has revealed he is planning a homecoming celebration in Scotland on Sunday, following his US Open success.

The new world number three will visit his home town of Dunblane to celebrate his golden summer of success.

Murray, 25, returned to the UK earlier in the week after beating Novak Djokovic in a five-set thriller at Flushing Meadows on Monday to claim his first Grand Slam title of his career.

The British number one's victory came weeks after he beat Roger Federer to win the gold medal match at the London Olympics.

And after being unable attend Friday's official victory parade for Scotland's Olympians and Paralympians in Glasgow, Murray admits he cannot wait to get back to his home town and thank fans for their support.

"It's definitely going to be emotional, but it's a very special place for me."

He said: "I can't wait to get back to Dunblane to where it all began and share my US Open victory with everyone and thank them for all the support.

"It's definitely going to be emotional, but it's a very special place for me."

Murray is expected to arrive in an open-topped bus at noon on Sunday, and then walk through the town towards the Dunblane Tennis Club courts where his journey to sporting success began.

His visit to the town is likely to last around three hours.
