Boris Johnson And David Cameron Square Up On Tennis Court (PICTURES)

Prime Minister David Cameron and the London mayor Boris Johnson clashed racquets as they took to the tennis court to raise awareness of next year's Paralympic Games.

The two political heavy-weights played out their alleged rivalry within the Conservative party on court.

Despite being the more portly of the pair, Boris Johnson eventually emerged from the match triumphant. Johnson jubilantly tweed afterwards: "Cracking game of tennis with the PM."
