London, July 11 (ANI): Good news for Andy Murray’s fans! The Duchess of Cornwall is putting the player’s sweatband up for grabs.
The 28-year-old tennis ace had thrown his wristband into the crowd following his second round victory over Robin Haase at Wimbledon, and was caught by All England Club chairman Philip Brook, who gave it the Duchess, the Mirror reported.
The Duchess will now sell off the sweatband for the Royal Veterinary College Animal Care Trust, for which she has been a patron for the last 10 years.
After the match, Murray said that he had met the duchess, adding that he saw she had his sweaty wristband in her bag and assumed Brook must have passed it over.
According to the auction post, the Duchess has put the item up for sale for “fans all over the world, in the hope that it will raise money for charity.”
It further reads: “This year marks the 10th anniversary of Her Royal Highness’s patronage of the Royal Veterinary College Animal Care Trust and the charity was personally selected by Andy Murray to benefit from this auction.” (ANI)
