Andy Murray tweeted about the big day in Scotland's history.


Scottish tennis ace Andy Murray on Thursday appeared to lend his support to independence on polling day and condemned negative tactics by the "No" camp in a tweet that quickly went viral.

"Huge day for Scotland today! 'No' campaign negativity last few days totally swayed my view on it. Excited to see the outcome. Let's do this!" read the tweet on his account @andy_murray.

The last exclamation echoes the one used by pro-independence leader Alex Salmond in a fiery final campaign speech in Perth on Wednesday before polls for the historic vote opened on Thursday.
