Andy Murray runs up a $1408 bar tab...despite just having a lemon soda

THE tennis champ was toasting his US Open victory in sober fashion while his pals enjoyed pricier options.

ANDY MURRAY sipped a $6 lemon soda to celebrate his US Open win … while mum Judy, girlfriend Kim Sears and other pals ran up a $1408 bar bill.

The Hakkasan Japanese restaurant in Manhattan had been closed for half-an-hour when the 30-strong party arrived.

Not only did they open again but, when it came to settling the bill, they also waived the $5040 cost of food and drinks.

Andy, who had picked up a cheque for $1.9 million for winning the US Open, only had to pay a 20 per cent tip of $1289.60.

The feast included spicy prawn with lily bulb and almond, and roasted silver cod with champagne and Chinese honey sauce.

Asked about the free meal, a member of staff at the London-based restaurant chain said: “They do that all the time. For them, it’s just good publicity.”

Have some rice alcohol, Andy! As good or stronger than vodka!
