Sir #Andy #Murray has appeared in a short film in an effort to encourage children to run The Daily Mile.

The fitness initiative was started at a school in Stirling six years ago by a head teacher who was worried about levels of childhood obesity.

More than 1,000,000 children take part in the scheme at 5,000 schools in 44 countries.

Sir Andy is making the appeal as part of his role as an ambassador for the NHS.

He said: “The Daily Mile is a great initiative because it’s a really simple step which can

have a direct impact on children’s physical and mental wellbeing.
