Tennis ace Boris Becker has served his time in UK prison and will be deported

Jailed tennis ace Boris Becker is to be deported to Germany after serving seven-months in prison.

The three times Wimbledon winner could be home for Christmas.

Becker, 54, has been approved for a scheme to send foreigners who commit crime in the UK to be sent back.

The programme is a bid to free up resources in Britain’s already overcrowded jails.


Becker was sentenced to two and a half years last April after being found guilty of hiding £2.5 million in assets while bankrupt.

A spokesman for Becker said they were “pleased’ he might return to Germany – “albeit England has been his home for many, many years.”

He added: “I’m sure it will mean a lot to him and his family to be reunited for Christmas.”
