London - Andy Murray found a new fan on Monday as he prepared to start the defence of his Wimbledon title - cartoon phenomenon Peppa Pig. 

The world number one and top seed name checked the popular children's character after losing in the first round at Queen's Club last month, saying defeat gave him more time to watch the show with his 17-month-old daughter Sophia. 

On Monday, Murray received a 'good luck' message from Peppa Pig. 

"Hello Andy Murray, have you had a good day?," Peppa said in a video message. 

"Do you like jumping in muddy puddles? If you jump in muddy puddles, you must wear your boots because you wouldn't want to get your tennis trainers muddy. 

"Andy Murray - Daddy Pig, Mummy Pig, George and I wish you the best of luck at Wimbledon. Lots of love, Peppa Pig."
