Step aside Cliff Richard....

Wimbledon has appointed its first ever official poet. Matthew Harvey, a lifelong tennis fan, will write a poem for every day of the two-week tournament, and will blog, tweet, and even recite the works to queuing spectators. The idea was proposed by the WImbledon Lawn Tennis Museum and was implemented in conjunction with the Poetry Trust, to create a 'different way of interpreting the championships'. Mr Harvey has already published his first poem as Wimbledon Laureate, called 'Grandest of Slams'.
