"I've made significant progress in practice and matches over the last ten days, but after lengthy discussions with my team and with a heavy heart, we've decided that playing best of five set matches might be a bit too soon in the recovery process.

"We did everything we could to try to be ready in time.

"I will start practising on the hard courts from tomorrow and continuing with my rehab and recovery and I'm looking forward to the US hardcourt season.

"Thanks for all the messages of support and I'm excited to finally be back playing after so long out."

He announced the news on his Facebook page, and has been flooded with comments from fans wishing him a speedy recovery.

Wimbledon also tweeted a message of support to Murray.

Murray has only played three competitive matches since he took time off from the game to recover from hip problems.

Just days ago, Murray took part in a press conference in which he said: "I'm pumped, obviously. Wimbledon for me is special for a lot of reasons and I always want to be here competing."

Murray was due to play his first match in just two days' time. He has been a winner at Wimbledon twice, first in 2013 and then again in 2016, but this year isn't the first time he's been forced to withdraw from the competition; back in 2007 he pulled out due to a wrist injury.

Jason Jung from Chinese Taipei will replace Murray in the draw.
