Saunders was looking to relax and went to offer the Scot a game of FIFA bizarrely at midnight and the night before Murray was due on court to actually play.

Speaking on Up Front with Simon Jordan he said:

“Another example of how immature I was happened in the Olympic Village, where obviously all of the athletes from every sport stay together.

“One night I knocked on Andy Murray’s door at midnight asking if he wanted to play FIFA, when he had a match the next day.

“That’s how childish I was mentally. Andy basically just told me to f**k off really.

“I can’t remember exactly what was said but it was along those lines.

“It was basically just, ‘What are you doing?’ Then he slammed the door shut.”

Saunders is looking to return to the sport having not boxed since he suffered defeat to Mexican star Canelo in May, 2021.
