Former soccer star VINNIE JONES has been the victim of a crime - tennis ace PETE SAMPRAS “stole” his limo.
The SNATCH star sent a limo from his Hollywood home to collect soccer pal JOHN HARTSON and his wife from the airport. Sampras was on his way to catch a flight to play at WIMBLEDON and assumed the car was for him and jumped in the back.
Says Jones, “Sampras got chucked out and had to get another one. We laughed about it later. He seemed like a nice bloke. He’s usually away but sometimes we see him from our garden practising on his tennis court.”
