Boris Becker has been threatened with deportation from Great Britain

Bad odds for tennis greats

What Boris Becker is looking forward to after his prison sentence

Could he no longer set foot on the hallowed turf at Wimbledon? Boris Becker was threatened with deportation from Great Britain after his prison term. A statement from the Ministry of Home Affairs leaves no doubt about this.

According to the Hungarian portal Blikk, citing sources directly from London’s Wandsworth prison, Boris Becker, who is incarcerated there, will be permanently deported from Great Britain after his release. Because of his debts and late bankruptcy, Becker was sentenced on April 29 to two and a half years in prison.

The three-time Wimbledon champion is unlikely to be allowed to enter the UK after serving his sentence. “Any foreigner sentenced to prison for a criminal offense will be deported as soon as possible,” a Home Office spokesman said. In plain language: the former world number one should leave the country as soon as he is released from prison. And he was not allowed to enter.
