The real story of Boris Becker's rise and fall with the help of some of those who know him best.
Boris Becker was the golden boy of world tennis – the youngest ever Wimbledon champion at just 17.
“Boom Boom”- as he was nicknamed because of his all-powerful serve - went on to win six Grand Slam titles and a doubles gold at the Olympics.
But in April 2022, the tennis legend landed himself a 36-month jail sentence after a highly publicised bankruptcy trial. How did this all-conquering champion who had everything end up in a rat-infested cell in Wandsworth Jail?
Probably nobody other than a rock star has been more written about than Becker. But we will tell the real story of his rise and fall for the first time, with the help of some of those who know him best. It’s a story of greed, egotism, arrogance and chronic sexual infidelity. Above all, it’s the story of the destructive power of fame.
