New love couple: Björn & John
Forget Kate & Jamie.
Forget prince Albert & Charlene.
There's a new love couple in town: Björn and John.
Last Friday, legendary tennis rivals and best friends Björn Borg and John McEnroe launched their 'Björn loves John' limited edition underwear collection. Over 100 journalists attended the press conference held at Wimbledon park where they rivaled each other in one of the most memorable Grand Slam finals ever held. Now, exactly 30 years later 'Mr. Cool' (Borg) and 'Big Mac' (McEnroe) team up with double designs and part of the proceeds go straight to charity.
