Britain’s Andy Murray might have won the gold in Sunday night’s tennis finals in Rio, but he also took home the gold medal in truth-telling.

Murray was the first modern Olympian to successfully defend a singles title after beating Argentina’s Juan Martin del Potro, but that wasn’t exactly what BBC presenter John Inverdale asked him.

“You’re the first person ever to win two Olympic tennis gold medals. That’s an extraordinary feat, isn’t it?” Inverdale asked.

But Murray knew that wasn’t true and he wasn’t about to take credit for something that was just wrong and possibly sexist.

“I think Venus and Serena [Williams] have won about four [gold medals] each,” the tennis star pointed out to Inverdale.

The Williams sisters do in fact have one gold medal apiece from the singles event and three gold medals from doubles.

Andy Murray has a history of telling it like it is when it comes to women.  He penned a column after seeing the way his female coach, Amelie Mauresmo, dealt with sexism from members of the media.

“Have I become a feminist? Well, if being a feminist is about fighting so that a woman is treated like a man then yes, I suppose I have.”

Shout out to Andy for giving champions like Venus and Serena, credit where credit is due.
