One-legged Boris Becker cut out causes chaos

Germany was reeling last night after a one-legged Boris Becker cut out almost caused a major motorway pile up.

The cardboard tribute to the former tennis ace was left standing on the busy B76 road between Kiel and Plön in northern Germany, causing motorists to swerve out of the way.

“He wouldn’t have won Wimbledon like that,” quipped police spokesman Bernd Triphahn, speaking to The Local and not taking the matter as seriously as he ought.

He said the cut-out was obviously old, dating back to the tennis legend’s glory days. “Someone must have had it in their cellar for ages,” said Triphahn.

“Cars travel along this road, which is not lit, at about 100 kmph, it was dangerous – one car was seen swerving to avoid it. In the dark the figure would have looked like a person.”

He said fingerprints had been taken from the figure.
