'Very dangerous and very lonely': Boris Becker reflects on life behind bars

Boris Becker admitted life in prison was "very dangerous" and could be "very lonely".

The tennis legend - who was freed from jail in December - under an early release scheme after serving only eight months of his two-and-a-half year sentence for breaching bankruptcy rules can't understand why people think being behind bars is "easy", though he acknowledged what little he knew of incarceration from TV shows and movies proved to be very different from the actuality.
