Former Wimbledon champion Boris Becker has been jailed for two and a half years after hiding £2.5 million worth of assets and loans in order to avoid paying debts after he was declared bankrupt in 2017.

Becker was found guilty of four charges under the Insolvency Act - concealing debt, removal of property, and failing to disclose estate.
