The "is Andy Murray British or Scottish?" debate gets more and more tedious every year - but it seems just that little bit more pointed at Wimbledon this time around.
With many people in England still reeling from the football team's loss to Iceland last night and the country in turmoil following the Brexit vote, all eyes were on Murray to make everyone feel a bit better as he opened his Wimbledon campaign.
Andy Murray can cheer us all up today by winning ... That would be lovely #Wimbledon2016 ??

Just one minor issue there, - Murray isn't English. He's very definitely Scottish.
And more than that, Liam Broady - who he beat - definitely is English.
The Scot Murray is not getting as much support as home favourite, English man Broady.

Here's hoping Liam Broady smashes Andy Murray, giving us English sumert to celebrate

Some people thought the English tennis fans were having their cake and eating it, just a little bit.

ha love how the English are wanting Broady to knock Murray out but as soon as that doesn't happen they'll all be backing Murray again

Watch the entire country stop following football and start supporting Andy Murray with shouts of 'I'm a quarter Scottish on my mum's side'

Let's hope the English fans didn't put too much emotional energy into supporting Broady - he lost in straight sets.
Some fans certainly wouldn't have been too happy about that as the made it clear they would not be supporting Murray.

But plenty of Brits were in more inclusive mood.
Great performance from Andy Murray. Such an unbelievable tennis player. Thank god he is classed as British and not Scottish
-- Dan Frankcom (@DFrankcom) June 28, 2016
Murray give England something to be proud of after this week! (Even tho your Scottish)

So what if Andy Murray wants Scottish independence? I respect that although I may disagree but doesn't stop me from admiring him #Wimbledon

Cheer up Britain: Andy Murray into Wimbledon 2nd round

Meanwhile, some people just found another way to make important points about Brexit.
Scottish Murray takes first set 6-2 over English Broady. This match looks like it'll align with Brexit voting. #Wimbledon

Another fall out from #Brexit: Once Scotland leaves the UK we won't be able to claim Andy Murray as 'ours'...

This is all getting too complicated. Let's just support Murray like these guys.
