Six-time Grand Slam winner and later TV presenter Boris Becker was released from prison in the UK, where he spent 8 months for debt evasion.

Becker landed in prison in April of this year after his case was considered by a London court. The jury partially recognized the tennis player’s guilt in an attempt to deceive creditors, and the judge appointed him 2.5 years in prison, recalling that twenty years ago a similar decision was made by a court in Germany. Then Becker was given two years probation for tax evasion.

Perhaps the most titled tennis player in the world, who has won six Grand Slam tournaments in his 15-year career, has never been poor. But greedy, it seems, has always been. He ended his professional career in 1999, and recently lived in the UK and worked as a sportscaster. However, in 2017 Becker filed for bankruptcy, saying he was unable to repay a total of around £50m to creditors. Later, the investigation found out that the athlete concealed information about the shares and real estate belonging to him, and also transferred large sums to his ex-wives at the time of the bankruptcy case.

By data British media, Becker in the very near future will be deported to his homeland – to Germany.
