He is facing up to seven years in prison after concealing hundreds of thousands of pounds following his bankruptcy. 

And the prospect of jail appeared to weigh heavy on Boris Becker as he looked teary-eyed and forlorn ahead of being sentenced tomorrow. 

The three-time Wimbledon champion, 54, was hugged by his girlfriend Lilian de Carvalho Monteiro yesterday after spending ‘family time’ with his son and estranged wife Lilly Becker days earlier. 

The German star-turned-commentator was found guilty of four charges under the Insolvency Act in a trial this month.

A London court heard he transferred £350,000 to other accounts, hid a property in Germany and failed to declare 75,000 shares in an IT firm and a £700,000 loan.

The father-of-four was legally obliged to disclose all his assets after being declared bankrupt in 2017.

The London-based star now faces losing lucrative contracts with TV networks around the world, including his job as a BBC pundit at Wimbledon.
