EuroMillionaires Chris and Colin Weir have joined a consortium backing Scottish tennis prodigy Ross Tiree Wilson (15).

As part of the group of Scottish supporters, they have helped raise the £50k needed to put left-hander Ross through two years' tuition at a top Spanish tennis academy - following in the footsteps of Andy Murray who was a similar age when he too made the move to Barcelona.

Ross is already British clay court champion in his age group.
