Andy Murray has vowed to donate his prize money for the remainder of the season to victims in Ukraine. 

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has forced millions to flee the country to safety.

The 34-year-old was prompted to make this decision after seeing images of children suffering.

“The stories, the footage, the images that everyone around the world has seen have been brutal,” said Murray to BBC Sport.

“I can’t imagine what it must be like having to live through that. I obviously have children myself, and when I see kids suffering, I find that especially difficult to watch.”

Murray hopes his donations will contribute to support the children of Ukraine.

“You feel kind of helpless, but that’s the best way I can help,” he said. “To draw attention to it and to try and raise as much money as I can.

“Hopefully that will help kids with their education and getting clean water and psychological support.”
