The Wimbledon and internet star who squeezed into Kim Clijsters’s skirt after shouting advice from the crowd at the Championships is to auction it for a local charity.

Chris was speaking to Rob and Laura on East Coast FM’s Freshly Squeezed this morning.

Chris Quinn, captain of Greystones Lawn Tennis Club here in County Wicklow, was pulled from the stands to tackle the former grand slam champion’s serve after heckling players in the ladies’ invitation doubles last Friday.

But the 46-year-old’s antics became an online sensation when Clijsters spotted his blue shorts and green t-shirt would have breached the strict dress code at the All-England Club.

Mr Quinn is to auction the former gear for the Gavin Glynn Foundation which helps terminally ill children.
