Kyle Edmund has taken over from Andy Murray as the British men’s No 1.

Yorkshireman Edmund leapfrogs training partner and Davis Cup team-mate Murray to become Britain’s top-ranked male tennis player in the latest ATP singles rankings.

The change comes about after Murray’s points for winning the Dubai Championships in 2016 were eliminated from the calculations.

The Scot has not played a competitive match since last year’s Wimbledon and remains sidelined after undergoing surgery on his troublesome hip last month.

Edmund, 23, reached the semi-finals of the Australian Open in January which enabled him to jump from the 49th-ranked player on the tour, up to world No 26.
