Tennis ace Boris Becker faces jail for hiding assets from bankruptcy

Grand Slam champion Boris Becker is facing a prison sentence for hiding hundreds of thousands of pounds of assets after he was declared bankrupt.The three-time Wimbledon winner, 54, ran aground financially in June 2017 after his £38 million tennis earnings were swallowed up by an expensive divorce, child maintenance, and his luxury lifestyle.Faced with demands to hand over his assets, Becker hid his stake in a property in Germany as well as shares in a tech company, and transferred £360,000 (€426,930) to others including his ex-wife Barbara and his estranged wife Sharlely “Lilly” Becker.
