Tennis in Trafalgar Square? You'd better believe it.

And congratulations go to Naiktha Bains, 7, from Leeds and Richard Bekoe, 9, from Southampton who were the overall winners.

Even they didn't let the Footballer's Wives who attended put them off!

Richard and Naiktha will have a masterclass with Boris during the Wimbledon Championships on 29 June.
