Boris Becker kept a low profile during his 10 months banged up in a British prison with the now-released former tennis ace shaken by a death threat from another inmate.

The 55-year-old German told broadcaster SAT-1 of his fears while banged up for fraudulent bankruptcy; he was released last week and immediately deported to his native land.

“I was immediately confronted with a reality that I had no experience with. It was dangerous. I tried not to look anyone in the eye and stay in my corner,” he said in an exclusive interview.

He gave a few sparse details of a threat against him while inside:

“”He (another prisoner) wanted to kill me. He underestimated that other inmates would come to my help and threaten him. 

“I was shaking so much, with the food tray in hand.”

He added: “(In prison) you are only a number. Mine was A2923EV. I wasn’t called Boris, 

‘I was a number. And nobody gives a s— who you are.

“”It was the worst time of my life but perhaps I needed it. I had a lot of time to reflect and I recognised my mistakes. I think jail was good for me.

“I believe I rediscovered the human in me, the person I once was. I’ve learnt a hard lesson. A very expensive one. A very painful one. I think I’ve become a better man than I was before.”
