UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown can’t beat his own son at tennis on Wii Sports. We knew you were rubbish, Gordon, but seriously.

“Mr Brown also revealed he has been struggling to play tennis on his four-year-old son John’s Wii video game console, said this. “He said: ‘It didn’t leave me out of puff but that’s because I was beaten early on by my son.'”

Gordon, take our advice. Practice every day until you’re proper awesome at it, come home from your next Iraqi summit, or whatever it is you do, offer to give him a game then destroy him, three sets to love. It’s the only way they learn.
