The Formula One world champion, Lewis Hamilton, was turned away on Sunday after arriving to watch the men's singles final between Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer while not wearing a jacket or a tie.

Hamilton, who wore a floral shirt and suede shoes to the All England Club, was forced to miss Djokovic's four-set victory - but Match of the Day presenter Lineker believes the strict dress code is outdated and could have been relaxed.

The former Tottenham striker tweeted: 'Might be me, but turning away @LewisHamilton from the Royal box for not wearing a bloody jacket and tie shows England as its pompous worst'.

'As expected many disagree. Actually it may all be about the crowd's dress sense rather than great sportspeople, sportsmanship and sport!'

Lineker's view was not shared by three-time Wimbledon runner-up Andy Roddick, who also took to Twitter to have his say.

Replying to the 54-year-old's initial tweet, Roddick wrote: 'Even when the invite says "please wear a jacket and tie?" ... This obnoxious American is ok w (sic) it.'

The American had earlier poked fun at his own clothes after sporting an untidy tie during BBC commentary duties alongside former fans' favourite Tim Henman.

He tweeted: 'I am horrible at tying a tie. My apologies to classy people everywhere #Wimbledon #canttieatie'.
