Andy Murray came into the interview room, choked with emotion, and revealed that he could no longer continue playing tennis with the pain that he was experiencing. He will retire at Wimbledon, if not before.
Afterwards, Tennis Podcast presenters Catherine Whitaker (Eurosport) and David Law (BBC 5 Live) exited the interview room to react to the news that so many feared was coming, but still came as a gut-wrenching shock.
They explain on the podcast what the atmosphere was like in the room, what he said to Whitaker in her Eurosport interview, and she describes an emotional scene when he encountered his coach, Jamie Delgado shortly afterwards.
The Tennis Podcast will be produced daily throughout the Australian Open, in association with The Telegraph.
