Britain number one Andy Murray has overtaken 14-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal to claim the third spot in the ATP world rankings.

The two-time Grand Slam champion climbed back to third spot after displaying an impressive performance in the 2015 Australian Open, where he finished as a runner-up following his defeat to Novak Djokovic.

Earlier, Murray fell as low as 12th in September 2014 after undergoing back surgery at the end of 2013.

The Scot came back strongly as he won three back-to-back ATP tour events in Shenzhen, Vienna and Valencia at the end of the last season, the BBC reported.

Murray will face Luxembourg's Gilles Muller on Tuesday in the Dubai duty Free Tennis Championship.
