Pimm's appoints Judy Murray as chief foliage officer for Wimbledon

Judy Murray's complaint of having too much mint foliage in her Pimm's has seen her appointed to a new role.
The drinks brand has taken her on board as chief foliage officer, just in time for Wimbledon, to ensure bar staff across the country know how to mix the perfect tennis favourite.
Last year, Judy tweeted that the garden herb was a "foliage overdose" in her drink, and now she has created a training video showing how it should be done.
She said: "My recipe for a perfect summer's afternoon is a delicious glass of Pimm's - and some great tennis. Jamie and Andy can take care of the tennis bit - I'll be focussing on making sure we get the right amount of mint in our Pimm's.
"The important part is to get the mint part right. If there is too much foliage going on then it spoils the taste of it."
Describing the perfect cocktail, she continued: "It's one part Pimm's, two parts lemonade, and then you chuck in the cucumber, the orange, the strawberries, the ice. You give it a little swiggle and you pop on your sprig of mint and voila - perfect."
She also revealed she would be carrying out spot checks on bars to see if they are following her guidance, adding that she may even be seen with her magnifying glass around the grounds of Wimbledon.
