Andy Murray has been boosted ahead of his US Open final appearance by a surprise show of support from two famous fellow Scots.
The 25-year-old overcame Tomas Berdych in a wind and rain hit semi-final in New York and will face Novak Djokovic in today's decider.
Murray's post-match news conference was interrupted by a visit from former Bond star Sir Sean Connery and Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
It was the first time the player had met either of the men and he posed for pictures with the pair and his mother Judy.
After Murray was heard telling his mother: “You smell of wine”. She then gestured to Sir Alex and said: "He made me have wine. He's just been telling me that Scotland invented the world."
Sir Alex responded: "Been coming here the last three years to New York, and I explained how Scotland invented the world - today we invented the wind."
Connery added: "Today they conquered the world!"
When the news conference resumed, Murray said: "It's great. It's obviously nice to have their support. Hopefully they'll be back for the final as well."
