Wimbledon champion Pat Cash claims God ‘sent’ him money when he was left almost penniless after divorcing his wife.
The 54-year-old tennis star told The Mail on Sunday that money ‘miracles’ have happened 20 times in his lifetime.
He said: ‘Whenever I need money, God sends some. Just enough to pay the bills. It happens all the time. Whenever I am in trouble or stuck, I get a new deal, renew a contract or am offered another income stream. This has happened 20 times. It’s weird.’

The Australian divorced Emily Bendit, the mother of his four children, in 2002 after 12 years together, and Cash said: ‘I had legal bills and financial commitments towards my family and ex-wife – and nowhere to live.’
Cash, who won the Wimbledon men’s singles title in 1987, credits his faith with helping him through the darkest times in his life.
He said: ‘I remember one day looking up to the sky and going, “‘God, will you please take over all my finances?” Within hours, a friend of mine called and asked me to play a tennis event which paid several thousand pounds and the highest fee I had ever earned for a set of doubles.’
