The Prime Minister admitted that, while his Deputy's technique is far better, but he has triumphed both times they have competed.

He told LBC: "He's got very good style. Anyone watching us having a knock-up would think that Clegg will win that one.

"But I do sometimes have tennis lessons. It's one way of keeping fit. I have actually had help from someone just down the corridor who I just saw [Andrew Castle, who works on LBC's sister station Smooth].

"I have. I come out on the radio. Only a few times I have to admit. He's quite good at tennis. He has some quite punishing routines that he puts you through, so that's probably helped a bit."

Nick Ferrari asked whether he could be ballboy next time they played, to which the Prime Minister replied: "Well, that would be a sight!"
