BORIS Becker has lost a court case against a TV comedian who persuaded him to accept cash.
The disgraced tennis legend, 54, wanted to prevent Oliver Pocher from showing footage of him accepting a fake trophy full of banknotes.
But his attempt to obtain an injunction was dismissed by a court in Germany.
It ruled the footage did not violate the three-time Wimbledon singles champion’s right to privacy.
Pocher’s prank was filmed in October 2020 for an RTL program called Pocher: Dangerously honest.
The comedian, who was married to Becker’s ex-fiancé, model Sandy Meyer-Wölden, raised £475 in donations for the bankrupt six-time Grand Slam winner with the slogan Make Boris Rich Again.
Pocher, 44, invited him to an alleged fashion awards ceremony where Becker was presented with a fake trophy filled with cash.
Becker, who is now serving 30 months in prison in the UK for hiding assets from creditors, said he was humiliated and insulted.
But the Offenburg district court rejected his application and based its judgment on freedom of expression and freedom of broadcasting.
