Former three-time Wimbledon champion Boris Becker has been declared bankrupt by the Bankruptcy and Companies Court.

The bankruptcy application was made by Arbuthnot Latham, firm of private bankers.

Becker’s lawyers asked for a final chance to pay with the funds from re-mortgaging a property in Majorca, however, the court registrar said there was not enough credible evidence that he could pay.

In 2012 a judge ordered Becker to auction off his villa in Palma, Spain, so that £225,000 of the profits can be set aside to pay a long-standing debt to owe a local landscape gardening company.
