Former tennis ace Boris Becker is to move back in with his former wife BARBARA, despite divorcing her in 2001.

The three-time Wimbledon champion will share his Majorcan villa with his 35-year-old ex so he can see more of their children ELIAS BALTHASAR, 3, and Noah Gabriel, 9.

Barbara says, "As a father he is a role model and the two of them love him very much."

Becker split with Barbara after it emerged he fathered a child with Russian model ANGELA ERMAKOVA after making love to her in a cupboard of a London restaurant.
