Simon Jordan plays padel tennis with Victoria Azarenka, Patrick Kluivert and Paris Saint-Germain owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi – ‘We both bashed up a particular Dutch player!’

    Simon Jordan had a star-studded morning on Tuesday in Doha, as he took part in a game of padel tennis.

    His opponents weren’t your average players though, as the White and Jordan co-host went up against some big names before going on air – one of whom he’d met last week.

    “I don’t want to namedrop, but I’m going to start,” he said on Tuesday’s White and Jordan show.

    “I had a little game of padel this morning with Nasser Al-Khelaifi. I felt the need to help Victoria Azarenka with her game, so she was my partner.

    “We ended up bashing a particular Dutch player, Patrick Kluivert, who felt he was a good player.

    “That was my little morning! I like to help people.”

    Of course Jordan’s comments were slightly tongue in cheek, given Azarenka was once world tennis singles No. 1.

    But this isn’t the first time Jordan has told a tale about taking on tennis pros.

    Back in July, the ex-Crystal Palace chairman explained he took on Novak Djokovic and Boris Becker, and claimed to give them a run for their money in padel tennis, too.

    The pair have a combined 26 Grand Slam titles between them… but they struggled against Jordan in padel tennis.

    That’s what Jordan says, of course!
