‘I just poured orange juice on my Weetabix’
The Sport Review’s weekly pick of ten of the best ‘tweets’ from some of the sporting world’s biggest stars.
1. “Turns out the Pope is staying in Wimbledon. I did not know this until I walked past the security guards with machine guns yesterday.”
The Papal visit catches tennis starlet Laura Robson by surprise.
2. “Going to sleep now hoping I don’t wake up having dreamt about talking to Derren Brown in the hotel car park!”
Our fingers are crossed for cricketer Jimmy Anderson.
3. “It’s the end of a really nice and busy day for me with tennis, sponsor commitments and I also made it to the hairdresser :)”
US Open semi-finalist Caroline Wozniacki tweets after a hard day’s work.

7. “Hmm, a bit tired this morning. Just poured orange juice on my weetabix. Not what I’d call the ideal start.”
A stuttering start to the day for cricketer Graeme Swann.
8. “President of FIFA, world football’s governing body.”
Technically no tweet here – we just find it strange that Sepp Blatter, the anti-technologyasaurus himself, has his very own Twitter account.
9. “We have a meeting now with the Referees .. Who are gonna explain how they will deal with decisions this year .. It’s every year the same ..”
Poor old Ryan Babel. This particular meeting sounds insufferably dull.
10. “What were you doing when you dropped your phone in the toilet?” Andy Roddick asks Serena Williams. “I dropped mine in once, and i know what i was doing…”
