Controversial tennis star Bernard Tomic has hit the headlines once again.
This time it’s because of his constant winking during a 60 Minutes interview which aired last night.
Double Bay Today can reveal exclusively the winking was actually a publicity stunt.
“I’ve signed on as Ambassador for leading bedding and mattress retailer Forty Winks,” says Tomic. “It’s a great company and I’m proud to be on board.”
DBT’s investigations unit analysed last night’s interview and can confirm Tomic winked exactly 40 times during the interview.
“Yes it’s true. I don’t actually care about Lleyton Hewitt or any of the other issues discussed,” admits Tomic. “I was just focused on making sure I winked 40 times. Unfortunately tennis won’t pay the bills forever.”
It’s understood Tomic has signed a 2-year deal with the retailer.
More to come.
