Olympic Gold Medalist Mo Farah Investigated Over Filming, Uploading Wimbledon Footage
Published June 28, 2013
Those lucky enough to receive an invitation to sit in the royal box on Centre Court "may soon receive a gentle reminder not to use their mobile phones," after Olympic Gold Medalist Mo Farah broke All England Club rules by doing so on Wednesday, according to Owen Gibson of the London GUARDIAN. A spokesperson for the club said that "it was looking into the matter" after Farah uploaded footage from court on to Twitter on Thursday night after his trip to Wimbledon. He "was seated alongside" TV host Bruce Forsyth and actor Stephen Fry. Wimbledon rules state that "phones must be switched off in and around the courts during play." There "is unlikely to be any action against Farah" (GUARDIAN, 6/27).
PRIVATE CONVERSATION: The PA reported Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall's private conversation with former tennis players Tim Henman, John McEnroe and Virginia Wade at Wimbledon "was inadvertently broadcast live on the BBC" Thursday. Viewers heard Camilla admit that she was possibly "too old" to play tennis during their meeting on a balcony at the All England Club. It came after the trio apparently "gatecrashed" an official engagement at which the Duchess was introduced to staff working at the Championships. Moments earlier "they turned away from the BBC's Wimbledon presenter, Sue Barker, to speak to Camilla but failed to turn off their microphones" (PA, 6/27).
