Wimbledon staff are having a problem with their new uniforms - with 60 pair of trousers splitting.

The cream Ralph Lauren trousers have torn open as line judges bend down in matches.

All 355 officials have had them double stitched by a tailor from the firm.

According to The Sun umpire Stuart Taylor said: "There were lots of accidents and ripping sounds. It was embarrassing."

A Ralph Lauren spokesman said: "We have had the odd problem but these have been fixed. Everyone is happy."
