Boris Becker enjoys a day out with girlfriend Lilian de Carvalho and son Elias at Wimbledon

Boris Becker enjoyed a day out with girlfriend Lilian de Carvalho and his son Elias at Wimbeldon on Saturday.  

The retired tennis pro, 53, cut a dapper figure for the outing as he sported a cream blazer which he paired with a white shirt.

The sports star also sported a green and purple striped tie along with black trousers and matching shoes.

Lilian showed off her sense of style for the outing in a white top which she wore with a matching blazer.

She also donned a houndstooth mini skirt while adding height to her frame with a pair of lime green heels.

Elias, 21, who Boris shares with his ex-wife Barbara Becker, sported a white T-shirt with matching trousers and a black blazer. 

It comes after the BBC was embroiled in yet another Wimbledon sexism row this week after Boris commented on the attractiveness of a player’s fiancee.

The pundit had spotted Marton Fucsovics’ partner in the stands as the Hungarian took on defending champ Novak Djokovic on Centre Court.

As Anett Boszormenyi, 29, flashed up on the screen, Boris remarked: ‘They do say they have the most beautiful women in Hungary. I wouldn’t know that, but she’s certainly very pretty.’

It comes after fellow commentator John McEnroe provoked anger earlier in the week by suggesting British teenager Emma Raducanu couldn’t handle the pressure at SW19.

The BBC defended three-time champion Boris – claiming that he had made a ‘light-hearted’ remark and did not intend to offend.

Boris was commentating alongside John Inverdale, who refrained from commenting on Miss Boszormenyi – having previously been slammed for saying French star Marion Bartoli was not a ‘looker’ and would ‘never be a [Maria] Sharapova’.

Instead he offered a net gag, saying: ‘That’s quite a good name for the partner of a tennis player, it’s always good to have a partner called Anett.

‘I’d like to thank my Christmas cracker from 1978 for that joke.’

Stephanie Hilborne, CEO of Women in Sport, condemned Boris’ remarks.

‘The charity Women in Sport has worked for decades to change sporting culture, including to end the objectification of women,’ she said. ‘When two men are comfortable talking about women in this way, never mind on live TV, it shows there is still more to do.

‘We need everyone to understand how this impacts on women and girls. Shouldn’t we be inspiring the next generation of girls to play sport rather than talking about what women look like?’

One Twitter user referenced Inverdale’s past gaffe, saying: ‘Looks like she passed his ‘looker’ test.’ Another fan tweeted: ‘It is turning a bit dirty old men brigade isn’t it?’

Fucsovics lost his quarter-final to Djokovic in straight sets.

On Monday, McEnroe had suggested Miss Raducanu, 18, retired from her fairytale Wimbledon run because the pressure became a ‘little bit too much’.

But Sir Andy Murray and his mother Judy leapt to the teenage star’s defence.

The BBC claimed McEnroe had been ‘sympathetic to Emma’s situation’ and was speaking from his own experience.
