Fallen tennis star Boris Becker ‘faces being kicked out of Britain’ after serving sentence for hiding £2.5m assets

The fallen tennis star, 54, is serving a sentence for hiding £2.5m of assets and loans to avoid paying debts after he was made bankrupt.

He was jailed for two-and-a-half years in April and sources say he has since landed a comfortable job at HMP Huntercomb in Oxfordshire.

But under deportation rules, the three-time Wimbledon-winning German could be kicked out of the country once he is free.

A Home Office spokesman said: “Any foreign national convicted of an offense and sentenced to imprisonment is considered for deportation at the earliest opportunity.”

In another scenario, Becker could be repatriated to Germany before his sentence ends, where he serves the rest of his time under the government’s early removal program.

The scheme allows “any foreign national serving a fixed sentence who is liable to be removed from the UK to be removed from prison and deported up to 12 months before first being released from the sentence”.

It would mean Becker could be released on license much sooner in Germany, which has a softer criminal justice system than Britain.

A source previously told The Sun: “He is very confident he will be back in Germany before Christmas.

“He believes he will be licensed by Christmas because they have a much more lenient court system.”

Insiders say the tennis champion has become a classroom assistant who teaches sports science to other underdogs in prison.

It is understood he does not work in the prison gym because he does not have enhanced prisoner status because he has not served enough time behind bars.

One insider said: “It’s not exactly the life of luxury he was used to – but he has it better than most prisoners.”

The Home Office told The Sun Online it could not comment on individual cases.
