Andy Murray coaches (well, shouts at) celebrities in comedy sketch for Unicef
Andy Murray has posted a very popular video on his Facebook page of him coaching - and getting angry at - a group of celebrities at Queen’s Club.
Murray, who was seen shouting and bawling throughout, was supposedly coaching One Direction’s Liam Payne, BBC presenter Clare Balding and comedian Jack Whitehall.
Murray takes on the role of demanding, short-tempered coach, attempting to force his charges to improve ahead of a charity tennis match.
However, as becomes increasingly clear, the group do not take kindly to Murray’s belligerent and uncompromising style of leadership.
Away from his acting in the comedy sketch, Murray spoke of his passion for the charity and the importance of the appeal.

“Sadly there are thousands of children that don’t get the vaccinations they need to grow up healthy,” he said.
“Unicef does an incredible job of reaching children living in the poorest and most remote countries to make sure they’re protected, but there’s so much more to do.
"Make sure you watch the sketch on Facebook and if you like it, please donate to Unicef UK’s Children in Danger Appeal.”
Every day, 17,000 children under the age of five die, most because they don’t get the health care and life-saving vaccines they need. Unicef UK is urging people to donate vital funds that are needed for children in danger of disease.
