Bad boy of tennis John McEnroe hits a landmark age

In John McEnroe: Still Rockin' at 60, we join everyone’s favourite Wimbledon commentator as he celebrates a milestone birthday. And and it wouldn’t be a party without Sue Barker!

Sue’s off to New York to get a better sense of the man whose on-court antics made him the enfant terrible of tennis, but also saw him win seven grand slams and a place in sporting history.

John's still got plenty of fire in his belly

Chatting to his wife Patty, close friends and great rival Björn Borg, Sue tries to work out who the real John is at home, and to see whether he’s still the short tempered maverick the world became fascinated by.

Stay tuned for a sneaky peek of John’s personal art gallery too – very fancy!
