Germany’s tennis icon Boris Becker has been serving his sentence in a British prison since the end of April. The 54-year-old was sentenced to two and a half years in prison. But according to “RTL / ntv” information, Becker could soon be deported to Germany. In the Federal Republic his sentence would then be suspended.
“One can assume that the British Home Office will deport Boris Becker when he has served the minimum sentence of 15 months,” says lawyer Chloe-Jane Belton to “ntv”.
Possibly even earlier. After all, every prison inmate costs British taxpayers around £50,000 a year – and Boris Becker is no exception.
For the former tennis pro, however, that would not be without problems, because if he is deported, he will not be able to travel to the United Kingdom for two years. And that’s where his youngest son Amadeus and his mother Lilly Becker live.
She now explained how her ex-husband is doing in prison: “Boris is fine, I’m fine – we’re all fine,” she told the “Mail Online”. “There is nothing to worry about.”
After all, the three-time Wimbledon champion can see friends and relatives more often in prison. The first person to visit him was his partner Lilian de Carvalho Monteiro.
She was also there when his two sons, Noah and Elias Becker, met him at Huntercombe Prison in Oxfordshire. He has been serving his sentence there since the end of May.
