What happened to Tim Henman in London is incredible, after the police stopped him at the end of the day of ceremony to Andy Murray, at Wimbledon. An incident, as Henman himself recounted, with a happy ending.

It was Henman himself who said he was followed by the police. The British - current BBC commentator at Wimbledon and technical voice of Eurosport during the Australian Open and Roland Garros - told the story of the particular moment in which he was questioned by the officers, who were hunting a suspect who was presumed to have fled the scene of an accident.

"I was driving home late that night about a quarter to midnight, and I saw the lights flashing about a hundred yards behind me. I was driving and I thought: Well, I'll pull over and let them pass. And then suddenly the police car pulled up alongside my car and was next to me. So, of course I rolled down the window and there was a policewoman driving and a policeman in the passenger seat. They started asking me questions and said: Where are you from? And I said: I'm coming back from Wimbledon. The policewoman then said: We've had a report of a Range Rover fleeing the scene of an accident. The policeman who was in the passenger seat turned to her and said: I don't think that's him. I thought: Okay, great!'" told Henman to BBC Radio 5 Live.
