2:40 pm on 9 November 2013

Scottish tennis star Andy Murray's been involved in a comical mix-up where some fans brandishing a tennis racquet and hunting for his autograph were arrested, with London police believing the four men had a gun.

The mix-up occurred in north London midweek when the Scot was in a car with his agent.

It is understood that two men got out of another car and knocked on the window of Murray's vehicle in an attempt to get him to sign a racquet, but the Wimbledon champion drove away.

Things went from bad to worse for the men as a member of the public thought one of them was carrying a gun and contacted police.
