Perfect combo strawberry and cream could disappear at Wimbledon!

The winning combo of strawberries and cream at the Wimbledon tennis tournament may disappear. That's what the tournament strawberry supplier are worried about, because of Britain's exit from the European Union that could bar the seasonal workers who pick the berries.

Marion Regan of Hugh Lowe Farms in southeast England explained what's the main problem: many of the seasonal workers come from eastern Europe, and so Brexit could not allow them to have contract with British companies.

'I very much hope that when we leave the European Union there will still be a mechanism by which these great young people are still able to come here', Regan said. Strawberries bring £61,700 each year to Wimbledon, which is a good amount of money.

But especially, fans love this tradition as it is very tasty, but also players and media do. It wouldn't be a good news for the whole tennis to see one of the most historical Championships' tradition disappear. This year Wimbledon will start on July 3 and will end on July 16.
