Defending Wimbledon champion Andy Murray has pledged to donate his winnings from the Aegon Championships at Queen's Club to the victims and families of the Grenfell Tower fire.

Reports also suggest that the tournament itself will make a significant donation following last week's tragic events.

Confederations Cup: Germany too good for Socceroos in Russian Federation , winning 3-2
The three games this week, and August's World Cup qualifier in Japan, could come to define coach Ange Postecoglou's reign. Germany showed experience beyond their years to close out the encounter, concluding with nearly 60% possession.

At least 79 people are dead or missing and presumed dead following the blaze that tore through the 24-story apartment block in west London, police have said. "I'm looking forward to getting out on the court and wearing the new kit", said Murray.

Andy Murray believes he is on the road to recovering top form as the World No.1 begins his hunt for a record sixth title at the Aegon Championships today. "The tournament, the most prestigious on grass in the lead up to Wimbledon, has since been upgraded to an ATP500 event".

Other US officials and agencies have more consistently condemned violent attacks - regardless of the circumstances. Opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn , who is the MP for the area, said he was "totally shocked".

This year he's made a concerted effort to support Roger Federer's work in raising money for causes in Africa. (The status of the tournament has been upgraded, which accounts for the disparity in the winner's purse.) Murray also helped put on a Rally Against Cancer that featured former London Mayor Boris Johnson, Oscar-winning actor Eddie Redmayne and comedian Michael McIntyre.

Murray's gesture follows similar acts of generosity from Arsenal's Hector Bellerin, who will donate £50 for every minute he plays for Spain during the U21 European Championships, this summer and Southampton's Ryan Bertrand, with the Saints man pledging to help the victims of the tragedy.
