Venus Williams and her sister Serena Williams took to the court against the father of King Richard III at Wimbledon.
Rich Williams, who famously taunted Roger Federer during the 2014 Australian Open final, was one of six celebrities in the semi-finals for the All England Club. Venus and Serena beat the Spaniards Sara Sorribes Tormo and Maria José Martínez Sánchez 6-3, 6-4 in a thrilling final to retain their ladies titles on Centre Court.
However, as the sisters headed to the winners’ stand, a fan shouted “Tom Baker” at the actor, best known for playing the revived Doctor Who. Tom “King Richard” himself took the moment to mock the actress as he posed for selfies with the players.
A video posted on Twitter showed King Richard sporting a t-shirt with the words “Marry Me” emblazoned across the front.
Roger Federer will meet the US tennis legend John McEnroe in the last four.
Barack Obama, Kim Kardashian West, Leonardo DiCaprio and David Beckham are among the celebrity cast of 18 other celebrity players that joined the championships in the past month.
