Becker is serving 2½ years for fraudulently hiding £2.5million of assets to avoid paying debts.

He has been at HMP Huntercombe near Henley, Oxfordshire, since May.

The six-time Grand Slam winner’s lawyer Oliver Moser told German media: “Our client Boris Becker is still doing well given the circumstances and he fits constructively into everyday prison life.”

Becker, 54, is said to have his own private cell and his ­behaviour has been described as impeccable.

A close friend said: “He’s popular with his ­fellow inmates.”

According to the source, since starting his sentence, Becker works out in the gym and has shed around 18lb.

The Sun told in July he had been made a classroom assistant teaching sport science.

And a person close to Becker said he teaches 45 inmates fitness, nutrition, crisis management, and a special type of yoga and meditation.

The source added: “As an athlete, he knows his way around victories and defeats.

“He shares his life experience with his fellow inmates.”

Becker’s “job” is said to be part of a bonus programme within the jail.

The more the inmates get involved, the more positive it is for their sentences.
