The Sunrise hosts had a bit of fun on Friday morning, poking fun at tennis star Andy Murray who lost his wedding ring in a very strange way.

"Tennis star Andy Murray has issued a desperate plea online after his wedding ring was stolen," Edwina Bartholomew began the segment. "It's not your average case of theft though, the grand slam champion explaining his ring was tied to his shoes, which were taken."

They then cut to a shot of Andy saying, "I thought, I'm going to leave the shoes underneath the car to get some air to them and dry them out overnight. Anyway, when I got back to the car in the morning, the shoes were gone."

Eddie then offered "further information", saying, "Murray ties his wedding ring to his shoes when playing because he can't leave it on his finger."


She continued, "Surely Andy Murray has somewhere better to dry his shoes than on the street, under the car for starters!"

"There's a lot that's bizarre about this," Matt Doran, who was filling in for David Koch, said with Eddie agreeing.

Sports reporter Mark Beretta jumped in saying, "The putting the ring on your shoelaces is not unusual, it does happen a bit, especially runners will do that."

"I like that idea," Matt added.

"Because it would slam against the racquet wouldn't it? It would clunk and be really annoying," Natalie Barr added.

Eddie then shared a personal story, adding, "It's not unusual for husbands to lose wedding rings either, as we have discovered in our own house."

Her co-hosts laughed and asked if Eddie's husband Neil Varcoe had managed to find it.

"No! He's got no idea where it is!" she responded.

"You're kidding," Matt said, with Eddie simply responded, "No."

Nat then shared that her husband Andrew Thompson lost his as well, but they just bought another one. 

Eddie said they just decided it was a waste of money and that he's "footloose and fancy free out there" without a ring, with Matt joking, "This is a bombshell!"

It then started a conversation on how many men don't wear wedding rings, with Matt saying he wants one when he gets married. 

"I can't wait! Bring it on!" he told his co-hosts.

"Oh, a modern man, that's so cute!" Nat said to him with Edwina warning him, "Don't lose it, Matt."

Andy Murray took to Instagram this morning to share a message to thank everyone who shared the story because he'd found his shoes and wedding ring!
