Wimbledon 2024: The sporting stars and celebrities spotted at this year's Championships


With the second week of Wimbledon in full swing, plenty of the world's biggest stars are flocking to South West London for the pinnacle of the grass court season.

Being one of the biggest sporting events on the calendar, Wimbledon is often set abuzz with celebrity and sporting icons looking to soak up the world-class tennis action, and this year has been no different.

From Paralympic and Olympic champions, to former professional tennis players, actors and actresses and iconic British legends, let's take a look at some of the famous faces who have taken to the All England Club so far this year.

Olympic and Paralympic champions

The 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games are right around the corner, but before the summer of sport continues in Paris, some of the most decorated Olympic and Paralympic athletes were invited to attend the Royal Box during the middle Saturday of the Championships.

Former track cyclist and six-time Olympic champion Chris Hoy, fellow cycling greats Jason and Laura Kenny and swimming world record holder Adam Peaty were amongst an illustrious list of stars watching on over Centre Court.

Sporting stars

Lionesses captain and Arsenal women star Leah Williamson, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola and former player David Beckham were amongst the football icons who have attended Wimbledon so far, while Kansas City Chiefs quarter-back Patrick Mahomes, English cricket star Ben Stokes and Irish Golfer Shane Lowry all swapped their respective sports for a day of tennis.

Tennis legends

Despite enjoying his retirement you just can't keep Roger Federer away from SW19. The former world No.1 engraved his name on the trophy a record-breaking eight times over his career, while Maria Sharapova also returned to the court where she claimed her first major title back in 2004.

Meanwhile, mutliple Grand Slam champions Ann Jones and Rod Laver were also in attendance.

Famous faces from the entertainment world

It hasn't all been sporting icons who've been experiencing all that Wimbledon has to offer. Familiar faces from the entertainment industry have also been absorbing the atmosphere at The Championships, including Sir David Attenborough, Sir Cliff Richard, Dame Mary Berry and stars from the Netlix phenomenon, Bridgerton.
