Boris Becker giving fellow prisoners lessons in jail as he serves time for hiding millions of pounds of assets

SHAMED tennis ace Boris Becker is giving fellow cons lessons in Stoicism.

Jailed tennis ace Boris Becker is teaching fellow cons lessons in Stoicism

He is one of two instructors teaching the ancient Greek philosophy — which encourages followers to live virtuously to help endure life’s misfortunes.

A source at HMP Huntercombe, near Henley- on-Thames, Oxon, said: “Boris has gone from mega-stardom to a bankrupt prison inmate in the space of a few years.

“It’s a remarkable fall from grace and he’s been forced to examine just about everything about himself.

“He’s the perfect person to teach this course.

“There’s a running joke that he’ll be spouting Stoicism on I’m A Celebrity in a year or two.”

Becker, who won six Grand Slams in a glittering career, was jailed in April. He began teaching the course, unique to Huntercombe, earlier this year.

The German helps lead a group of about a dozen inmates, guiding them through worksheets.

The prison source said: “He’s a popular guy. People know he’s been through a lot.”

Stoicism was founded in Ancient Greek in the early 3rd century BC.
