DISGRACED tennis champ Boris Becker has moaned about the grim food in his prison — after being served corned beef as his first meal behind bars.
The fallen idol — known for his love of Cuban cigars, fine wines and posh restaurants — has also complained about the tiny portions handed out.

He has an allowance of just £10 a week and has told pals he is topping up his meals by buying chocolate, biscuits and bananas from the prison canteen.
Becker, 54,— whose favourite food on the outside was fillet steak and lobster surf and turf — is being held in a cell of six square metres and is locked away from 8pm each night until 7am the next day.
He has been told he will keep his own cell, unlike most other inmates who share, and is likely to be transferred to a softer jail within weeks.
The former Wimbledon champion is also struggling to sleep due to “constant noise” at night and the stench of tough Wandsworth Prison, South West London.
A source said: “He is having a rough time and the worst thing of all is the food.
“He cannot believe how bad it is and how small the portions are. One of his first meals was corned beef, which wasn’t good.
“But he will have to get used to it. He is also shocked at the lack of hygiene at the prison because it’s so overcrowded.
“The conditions are miserable, almost inhumane. It can get cold in the cells and there’s hardly any daylight.
“It is all a massive shock to his system but he seems to be being treated OK.”
He had his first visitor on Friday when girlfriend Lilian de Carvalho Monteiro arrived.
She took him items including work boots and clothes in a Puma holdall.
Becker, who is likely to serve 15 months, showed no remorse when jailed at Southwark crown court.
He could be deported when he is released.
