Murray, 35, will represent Britain for the fourth time at the Olympics and joins his younger brother and twice Olympic champion Andy Murray, 34, who is set to feture in the singles.

Jamie Murray and Skupski, who partnered American Desirae Krawczyk to the mixed doubles title at Wimbledon on Sunday, competed together on the ATP Tour last season and in Britain's run to the Davis Cup semi-finals in 2019.

In 2020, the pair won the Sofia Open and reached the finals in Cincinnati and Vienna.
