While wearing his UA Clutchfit Pursuit sneakers in a new red colorway, he triumphed over the Nike athlete, 7-5, 4-6, 6-2, 7-5. Japan’s Kei Nishikori took the bronze medal.

Murray’s flexible footwear features two-way stretch synthetic material and a foam sole that supports stability.

The tennis ace signed a four-year endorsement deal with Under Armour in late 2014.

It’s a back-to-back Olympic win for Murray, who earned gold at the 2012 London Games.
