Andy Murray warns Roger Federer to stay away from deep-fried Mars bars

World No. 1 Andy Murray had one piece of advice for Roger Federer when he revealed the 18-time grand slam champion will play in Scotland for the first time this year.

“Don’t try the deep-fried Mars bars.”



In announcing that the Swiss star would be his guest at an exhibition event in Glasgow, Murray warned his tennis rival against sampling the sweet dish invented in his homeland.

“I tried one last year for the first time and it was horrific,” said the Wimbledon champion, smiling. “Stay away from them.”



Deep frying a Mars bar was invented in Scotland in the early 1990s, and by the beginning of this century the snack’s reputation was such that it was mentioned on the Jay Leno Show in 2004.



Speaking in east London at the launch of “Andy Murray Live 2017,” the Olympic champion said it would be “incredible” for tennis fans in Scotland to watch Federer, 35, play at the SSE Hydro on November 7.

“All of us involved in this event are very, very lucky that he’s agreed to do it. I’m really looking forward to it,” added the 29-year-old, whose first “Andy Murray Live” last year raised over £300,000 ($375,000) for charity.

“He’s just really popular everywhere. He said a few years ago that he wants to try to go to places where he’s not been so that all his fans can watch him.”
