Andy Murray serves up a treat for fans in Cincinnati ice-cream parlour

Andy Murray dons disguise to sell ice-cream

He is more used to serving up aces than desserts but Andy Murray tried his hand at selling ice-creams to trick fans in the United States.

The world number two donned a disguise of a wig and baseball cap and began working behind the counter of an ice-cream parlour in the Ohio city of Cincinnati.

But his attempts to go incognito did not fool many fans as they quickly recognised the British number one and two-time grand slam winner.

Murray's spokesman said he was just "larking about" to see if fans would recognise him.

Julie Boniface tweetedexternal-link pictures of Murray, which also appeared on his official website,external-link and said: "When @andy_murray is disguised and serves ice cream for you then takes off his wig to take a pic with you."

The Scot, 28, is in the United States for the Cincinnati Masters, just days after beating world number one Novak Djokovic to win the Rogers Cup in Montreal.

Murray plays American Mardy Fish in the second round on Wednesday.
