Sir Elton John triumphed on the tennis court in an annual charity game on Sunday (17Nov13) and helped raise more than $700,000 (£466,000) for charity.

The Rocket Man co-hosted the 21st annual Mylan World TeamTennis Smash Hits match with legendary player Billie Jean King, who he went on to beat on the court at the event in Orlando, Florida.

His team, comprising of Andy Roddick, Venus Williams, Robert Kendrick and Vicky Duval, smashed King's 24-18.

The $700,000 raised by the event will be split between the Elton John AIDS Foundation and the Hope and Help Center of Central Florida, which also offers treatment and education to people suffering from the disease.
