Romeo Beckham “showed a lot of potential” during a tennis lesson with world number 11 Grigor Dimitrov.

That’s the same Romeo Beckham who is the son of football legend David Beckham.

According to Dimitrov, who is currently competing in the 2017 Wimbledon Championships, Beckham Jr “is a talented kid” despite not “playing tennis for that long.”

Dimitrov taught the 14-year-old a few things on the court on Sunday.

Three days later, the 26-year-old Bulgarian dispatched of Diego Schwartzman in straight sets in his first round Wimbledon match.

After the victory, he said: “Romeo is a very talented kid. I [don’t] think he has played tennis for that long, but he sure showed a lot of potential.”

It is not the first time Romeo Beckham has benefited from expert tuition. The teenager enjoyed a lesson with reigning Wimbledon champion Andy Murray last year.

A keen tennis fan, Beckham Jr has been spotted at the AEGON Championships in June and the ATP World Tour finals in 2016.

“[Romeo] came to quite a few of my matches,” Dimitrov said. “I just wanted to do something nice for him.”

Here’s Grigor giving Beckham some advice on the court.
