Watch out Andy Murray - Great Britain could have a new British tennis hero, and he goes by the name of Beckham, Romeo Beckham.

Son of former Manchester United and Real Madrid winger David Beckham, Romeo has been tipped as a future tennis superstar.

Tennis coach John Johnson has been impressed by the 12-year-old and strongly believes he has the potential to establish himself in the sport.

Johnson told the Daily Star: "I'm going to have a meeting with his mother about it to reinforce that because I'm not sure his parents realise how good he is.

He added: "Romeo really loves tennis. He is really into it and very talented. Romeo has a natural swing and is very enthusiastic, he just loves it."

Having initially taken the sport up with his two brothers, Brooklyn and Cruz, it is only Romeo who has persisted with the £30-per-hour lessons.

Young Romeo could have to choose between following in his dad’s footsteps and becoming a sportsman or follow in his mother's and go into fashion, having already modelled for Burberry.

Romeo isn’t the only Beckham child to make the news recently as older brother Brooklyn looks set to be released by Arsenal.
