12:17 pm on 8 May 2009

Fans of Germany's tennis legend Boris Becker will be able to watch daily videos on his private life with the German tabloid Bild Abourt launching Boris-Becker TV on their website.

Nearly 10 years after he retired, Becker is still a major celebrity in Germany after winning three Wimbledon titles in the 1980s.

Now, having turned his hand to becoming a professional poker player, Becker is set to be a TV star.

Fans will be able to tune in through the Bild website to see "Boom-Boom" Becker in business meetings, playing with his children or preparing for next month's wedding to model Lilly Kerssenberg.
