Boris Becker is currently in prison in London.
Now Barbara Schöneberger put a saying in him at the ESC that not everyone likes.
Hamburg/London/Turin - The deep fall of Boris Becker!
The tennis legend is in prison in London.
Three-time Wimbledon winner Becker was sentenced to two and a half years in prison on April 29 in London for bankruptcy offenses.
Did the 54-year-old see the Eurovision Song Contest and the previous show?
That is highly unlikely.
Probably better like this.
Boris Becker: Bad saying at ESC by Barbara Schöneberger
Because: He had to put up with a bad saying in front of an audience of millions.
According to DWDL
, an average of 3.46 million people watched the show “Countdown for Turin” from 8:15 p.m. on Saturday (May 14)
, moderated by Barbara Schöneberger, before the actual ESC 2022 started at 9 p.m.
As expected, the bird of paradise Schöneberger chose clothes that were not exactly suitable for everyday use and first made fun of himself.
Regarding this year's ESC motto "The Sound of Beauty", she says when welcoming: "Of course I combed everything forward that was somehow possible.
If I may start at the bottom: my shoes are made of the finest vitello tonnato, my dress is al dente.” All of this up to that point with a mock Italian accent.

The swipe at Boris Becker follows: "My underwear is tighter than Boris Becker's cell." The list goes on - but it should be above all the gossip about Boris Becker that got stuck with many viewers.
Boris Becker: Schöneberger gag finds Twitter user "inhuman"
"It is inhuman to use other people's misery to improve yourself," complains a user on Twitter about the saying and gets at least 13 likes.
"Is that funny?" and "For me it's level" others scold.
The Schöneberger sentence hit Boris Becker's perhaps sore spot at the moment.
Because the cells are supposed to be cramped and the prison conditions tough, as numerous reports indicate.
Even more: Boris Becker is said to find it very difficult to acclimate - after all, he lived a completely different life for decades.
