FURIOUS tennis fans desperate to see Andy Murray lead Great Britain to glory in the Davis Cup final have blasted greedy touts after tickets appeared online costing thousands more than the actual price.

Andy, 28, and the rest of Team GB are due to battle Belgium in the crunch final tie of the tournament on 27-29th November.

A public sale to fans on the Davis Cup website yesterday saw tickets sell out within minutes before greedy touts moved in and began selling the briefs at hugely inflated prices online.

The highest price for a single ticket is £67, but online tickets are being sold for 36 times that amount.

On ticket site Stubhub, a single ticket for the first day of singles action is being sold from £483 with the best seats going for £2,450.

And tickets for the Saturday doubles are being sold for between £1300 to £2450.

That means that four adults would have to pay nearly £10,000 to see the match live.
