Lewis Hamilton Gets An Apology After *That* Wimbledon Fail

Remember at the weekend when Lewis Hamilton was refused entry to the Royal Box at Wimbledon? 

After proudly flaunting his Royal Box tickets on Instagram, the Formula One racer rocked up in a trendy floral shirt, trousers and a hat, only to be turned away by the strict stewards who insisted he wear a jacket and tie. Oops!

‘Due to an unfortunate misunderstanding regarding the dress code at Wimbledon, Lewis is very disappointed to have missed the men’s final’, Lewis’ rep later said in a statement. What a blunder.


But in a sweet turn of events, the All England Club have now responded to the incident by inviting Lewis back to the Box to make up for the embarrassing mis-hap. Aw.

‘We will definitely be asking him back and hopefully it will fit in with his schedule,’ said Richard Lewis, Chief Executive of the All England Club. ‘The problem was that we didn’t have anything on hand appropriate for him to wear in what is a very high profile place.

‘He was apologetic and very polite’, he added. ‘We very much hope that he will be able to come again.’.

Also sitting nearby was a newly-single Bradley Cooper, looking handsome in a white jacket, shirt and tie, all topped off with a pair of dark shades, and Hugh Grant and Anna Elisabet Eberstein, the mother of his third child.

And we have to say, Anna pretty much had the best seats in the house… Benedict, Bradley and Hugh all as your Royal Box neighbours? It’s alright for some.

Unfortunately, not everyone appeared to be having such a great time at the tennis tournament.
