Lewis Hamilton refused entry to Wimbledon’s Royal Box because he was ‘not smart enough’ –
Lewis Hamilton was barred from entering the Royal Box during the Wimbledon final on Sunday because he was not wearing a jacket and tie. Despite receiving an invitation to watch the men’s singles final from the Royal Box, the Formula One champion missed the match owing to an “unfortunate misunderstanding regarding the dress code at Wimbledon”, according to his spokesman. Earlier in the day Hamilton posted a picture on Instagram showing his Royal Box invitation package, saying he was “honoured” to have received it. He later posted another picture of himself on Instagram dressed in a colourful shirt and trousers, with the caption “Wimbledon”. [Daily Telegraph]
