Andy Murray hinted that he may have played his last match at an Olympics after losing in the men’s doubles quarter-final alongside Joe Salisbury. 

The British pair, who impressed in their opening two encounters, lost 6-4 6-7(2) 7-10 to Marin Cilic and Ivan Dodig for a place in the semi-finals and a chance at a medal.

Murray, who was bidding to become the first player to win four Olympic medals since the sport was re-introduced, pulled out of the singles event to concentrate on his doubles partnership.

After the defeat, the pair were bitterly disappointed, with Murray admitting it may have been his last match at an Olympic Games.

“I don’t know if I’ll get the opportunity to play again,” Murray said, having won singles gold at London 2012 and Rio 2016 and a mixed doubles silver alongside Laura Robson in 2012.

“I’ve loved every minute of playing in the Olympics. I wish that today could have gone differently.

“I had another chance with Joe to win a medal, we were so close, and that’s what’s disappointing. I would like to have done some stuff differently in the match to try to help out more.”
