Wimbledon star and Olympic silver medallist Laura Robson has been visiting school children to show off her skills and promote the tennis among young people.

The visits included a trip to Granard Primary School in Roehampton, where she showed off her racket skills to seven to nine-year-olds.

She then made the journey to Saint Cecilia’s Secondary School in Wandsworth in her own ‘spin around London’ taxi, to impress 12 to 18-year-olds.

The British number one said: “It was a special opportunity for me to show youngsters in the community close to Wimbledon how much fun they can have in the sport and also get the kind of exercise they need for a healthy future life."
