Murray - made in Scotland from girders

Irn-Bru makers AG Barr enjoyed some great free PR after Andy Murray's epic win at the US Open this week. 

The mighty Scotsman was snapped drinking a bottle of Scotland's most famous soft drink following his five-set defeat of Novak Djokovic. And the Daily Record even reported he turned down other drinks later, in favour of more Irn-Bru.  

Murray is famously proud of his homeland, so it's perhaps no surprise he used the opportunity to promote one its most recognisable brands.

I wonder whether execs at Barr's potential future partners, Britvic, enjoyed a wry smile at the coverage too?  

(Incidentally, Britvic used to sponsor Murray through its Robinsons brand.)
