Wimbledon winner Andy Murray will appear in the 75th anniversary issue of The Beano.

Perhaps unsurprisingly he is the first British men’s Wimbledon champion to do so. In this special edition, Murray faces off against Minnie the Minx in a game of tennis which, surely, can only go one way.

The anniversary issue celebrates 75 years of The Beano and will also feature a host of other famous faces, yet to be announced.

The Beano Editor Craig Graham said, “The Beano celebrates its 75th anniversary this year and we’ve been working hard to put together an extra special issue that is packed full of menacing, pranks and jokes! We always planned to include Andy Murray in this amazing issue – but we’ve reworked the strip to reflect his historic Wimbledon win.”

Craig added, “The issue will also feature special guest writers and illustrators, celebrity contributions and young comic genius Zoom Rockman’s debut Beano strip! It’s been a real honour to work on this extra special issue and we hope Andy – and all our readers – like it!”

The Beano is renowned for drawing iconic British faces into its strips with past issues featuring The Duke and Duchess of Rothesay and famous names such as Simon Cowell, Chris Evans and Olympic heptathlete Jessica Ennis.

The issue goes on sale on Wednesday 24th July.
