Andy Murray had something of a rough ride during a flight from Paris to London this week - when his plane was hit twice by lightning.

Andy got caught in the thunderstorm on Monday, reports the Daily Record.

The tennis ace tweeted about the ordeal immediately afterwards, writing: "Lightning just struck twice... the plane I was on from Paris to London. Been a rough few days travel. #sweatypalms #whiteknuckles."

And, as he hinted at, it wasn't the fist travel hiccup he'd experience recently. On 20 April he tweeted: "Engine problem en route to Paris."

Andy was returning from training with coach Daniel Vallverdu in Paris when the lightning struck.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday Andy will receive an honorary degree by the University of Stirling, where he trained as a boy.

As well as the award, he will also receive the Freedom of the City by Strirling Council during a council meeting at his home town of Dunblane.

According to ESPN, he said: "I am honoured and very grateful to receive this award from the University of Stirling - an institution which is recognised internationally for its sports research and facilities."

Wimbledon champion Andy also recently opened a luxury hotel called Cromlix House near his home town.
