DISGRACED Boris Becker had a visit from his girlfriend Lilian de Carvalho Monteiro and his eldest son Noah in prison this week.

They visited him on Monday, a day before the fallen tennis hero turned 55.

Lilian, 42, and Noah, 28, looked dejected as they left Category C HMP Huntercombe near Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire.

The couple appeared to receive special treatment compared to other visitors when their chauffeur-driven car waited two hours outside in the visitors’ lot and was picked up by a prison guard and pulled to the inmates’ entrance to keep them out of the storm.

Six-time Grand Slam champion Becker was jailed for two and a half years in April for hiding £2.5million in assets and loans to avoid paying a debt.

This comes as Becker found out he would be deported to Germany in time for Christmas.

He was approved for an accelerated program that sends foreign scammers to their home countries to ease the pressure on British prisons.

He was placed under the early release scheme, which “allows any alien serving a fixed sentence who is subject to deportation from the UK to be released from prison and deported up to 12 months before the earliest date of his sentence” .

Offenders benefit from a reduction in their sentence of up to 135 days if they agree to go home.

His former spokesman said: “We are delighted for Boris that he may qualify for early release and be able to travel to Germany despite England having been his home for many, many years.

“I’m sure it will mean a lot to him and his family to be reunited for Christmas.”
