Three-time Wimbledon tennis champion Boris Becker has been declared bankrupt by a registrar who watched him play on the All England Club's Centre Court.

The 49-year-old owed an investment company a large sum and Miss Registrar Christine Derrett said it was "with regret" she felt there was not enough credible evidence that he could pay.

Becker, now a coach and TV pundit, was not present at the hearing in London.
