Watch: Andy Murray put a BBC presenter in his place after women's Olympic tennis gaffe

Andy Murray may have been exhausted after his Olympic tennis gold medal match, but he still had enough left in the tank to put John Inverdale in his place after a fairly embarrassing gaffe.

The BBC presenter interviewed Murray following the Scot's hard-fought victory over Argentina's Juan Martin Del Potro on Sunday night in Rio.

Murray retained his Olympic title, the first male tennis player to achieve the feat. Inverdale congratulated Murray on being "the first person ever to win two Olympic tennis gold medals."

However, Venus Williams has won five Olympic medals, four gold and a silver, and her sister Serena has won four Olympic gold medals.

The BBC presenter was corrected by Murray, and it made for an awkward exchange.

Inverdale is no stranger to an on-air gaffe.

After Marion Bartoli won Wimbledon in 2013, Inverdale said live on BBC radio: "Do you think Bartoli's dad told her when she was little 'You're never going to be a looker? You'll never be a Sharapova, so you have to be scrappy and fight."

He also seems to be Steve Redgrave's bad books.

And has a strange taste in scarfs.
