"Andy Murray arrived on Friday night and will stay until at least the first week of April," a member of the academy told AFP.

The three-time Grand Slam champion has been targeting a comeback for the grass-court season in June, but his resumption of training will increase the possibility of an earlier return than expected.

A video posted on Instagram showed Murray practising on a hard court at the academy near Nice with his coach Jamie Delgado.

The 30-year-old Briton has not played competitively since a quarter-final defeat by Sam Querrey at Wimbledon last July, and has since slipped to 29th in the world rankings.
