Pictures on social media showed the vehicle beside the postbox lying on the ground in the tennis star’s hometown.

A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Police in Forth Valley attended at Dunblane High Street at around 7.50pm on Monday July 22 following a report of a low-speed collision where a Mercedes car struck a Royal Mail postbox.

“The female driver of the car sustained a minor injury but didn’t require medical attention.

“Inquiries into this incident are ongoing.”

A Royal Mail spokeswoman added: “We’re aware that the Andy Murray gold postbox has been knocked down and will look to reinstate it as soon as possible.”
