Andy Murray had a heavy workload before his Olympic final with Roger Federer after the British star and partner Laura Robson moved into the mixed doubles semi-finals on Saturday.

Murray will be going for his first singles gold medal when he faces Federer today in a rematch of last month’s Wimbledon final, which the Swiss great won in four sets.
