Three-time Wimbledon champion Boris Becker has been jailed for two and a half years for hiding £2.5 million (€2.9m) worth of assets and loans to avoid paying his debts.

The former world number one, 54, was declared bankrupt on June 21 2017, owing creditors almost £50 million (€59m) , over an unpaid loan of more than £3 million (€3.5m) on his estate in Mallorca, Spain.

BBC commentator Becker transferred almost €427,000 euros (about £390,000) from his business account to others, including those of his ex-wife Barbara and estranged wife Sharlely ‘Lilly’ Becker.

The father-of-four also failed to declare his share in a £1 million property in his home town of Leimen, Germany, hid an €825,000 (almost £700,000) bank loan – worth £1.1 million (€1.3m) with interest – and concealed 75,000 shares in a tech firm, valued at €78, 569  (£66,000).

Becker, who was handed a two-year suspended sentence for tax evasion and attempted tax evasion worth 1.7 million euro (around £1.4 million) in Germany in 2002, was found guilty of four offences under the Insolvency Act between June 21 and October 3 2017 earlier this month.
