Polo Ralph Lauren has announced that Boris Becker will partner with the company as its official brand ambassador for the Wimbledon tennis championships.

The former Wimbledon tennis champion turned commentator will be wearing the luxury apparel brand throughout the tournament in his role as a Wimbledon commentator and brand ambassador.

He will also be launching a new "Interactive Shopping Experience" for Ralph Lauren at the designer's London flagship store in late June, the company said.

Becker is set to co-host a Wimbledon party at the company's flagship store at 1 New Bond Street next week (20 June).

"We are thrilled to have Boris on board with Wimbledon, and proud to continue our partnership with this historic sporting event," said David Lauren, senior vice president of advertising, marketing and corporate communications for Ralph Lauren.

It is Ralph Lauren's second year as official outfitter of Wimbledon, through a collection of apparel for on-court officials, chair umpires, line judges and ball persons.
