Boris Becker among sporting stars at Windsor polo match

Three-time Wimbledon champion Boris Becker was among the sporting icons watching some polo action at Windsor Great Park.

The former tennis star was joined by Olympic athletic champions Ed Moses and Daley Thompson, and rugby stars Hugo Porta and Sean Fitzpatrick at the Guards Polo Club.

All are Laureus ambassadors who handed out medals and hosted the Laureus Polo Cup on Saturday.

Top polo players, including from Argentina, feature in the Laureus Global Partners Mercedes-AMG team who won 5 and a half to 4 against WC Schaffhausen.

The match raised £100,000 for the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation in Argentina, which supports six programmes for disadvantaged young people in the South American country.

Laureus World Sports Academy member Hugo Porta said: "Everyone at Windsor has contributed to an important humanitarian cause. This will help to improve the lives of so many young people in my country."
