    Boris Becker

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-44489798
    Former tennis champion Boris Becker is claiming diplomatic immunity against an attempt to sue him.

    The three-time Wimbledon winner claims his appointment as a diplomat by the Central African Republic affords him protection from any legal claims.

    Mr Becker was declared bankrupt in 2017 over money owed to private bank Arbuthnot Latham. He is now being pursued for "further assets".

    He has appointed Ben Emmerson QC, who has previously represented Julian Assange

    I would agree that on the face of it, it looks like Boris is using international law unscruptiously to avoid arrest however, when I see the words 'private bank' I kinda get a feeling there might be more to it than first meets the eye.

    I'm not one to cry over a private bank losing out.

    But this has all the hallmarks of a John Grisham novel.

    Whatever there is to it he was in a position to have a excellent standard of living after playing. With all the prize money and sponsorship over his career.

    I think therefore the guy is a tosser.
