Sir Elton’s hilarious stack at Statoil Masters

Sir Elton John has taken an embarrassing tumble courtside at the Statoil Masters at the Royal Albert Hall, falling backwards out of his canvas chair in comical fashion.

The veteran pop megastar was leading a team including Andy Roddick, John McEnroe, Heather Watson and Martina Hingis against a Billie Jean King-led team at the exhibition tournament.

Hingis appears to find the 67-year-old’s stack particularly humorous. To his credit, Sir Elton saw the funny side of it as well and even made a joke at his own expense to the crowd. 

Sir Elton has some decent previous form on the court, however, memorably producing this inch-perfect lob over Andre Agassi when he was paired up with Martina Navratilova against Agassi and Steffi Graf in an exhibition match.
