Judge Sarah Gibbons analysed legal issues relating to the Beckers’ planned divorce at a hearing in the Central Family Court in London on Friday.  

Neither Becker, 50, nor Mrs Becker, 42, were were in court but both were represented by lawyers. 

Barrister Frances Harris led Becker’s legal team and barrister Max Lewis led Mrs Becker’s legal team.
