Bromley's own famous tennis star Emma Raducanu has been taking photos with fans at a restaurant in Orpington.

Emma was spotted by her fans in Amano restaurant - managed by Maya Sheikh.

Maya's husband Tariq Sheikh was having a coffee in Amano at lunchtime on October 20 when he noticed people approaching the table next to him and asking for photos.

Tariq said he was "engrossed" in his work, and it took around 15 minutes before he saw Emma Raducanu sat with her coach and agent.

He said he "smiled" as he couldn't believe what he was seeing.

Tariq told the News Shopper: "I smiled as I couldn't quite believe that the US Open Ladies Champion was just sitting there, calmly drinking her coffee and talking about her next WTA tournament in Transylvania."

News Shopper:

As a coincidence, Tariq had two of his 25-year-old Wilson Pro Staff Classic tennis racquets with him as he was planning on playing the sport later that day at Knoll Orpington Tennis Club.

Tariq added: "After about 10 minutes I walked over and politely asked if I could have a photo with her.

"I said, 'have you seen my racquet? It is older than you'

"We had a brief chat about my old Wilson racquet and smiled at each other, then took a quick photo."

The following day, manager Maya also met Emma and took a photo with her.

News Shopper:

She gave her some Italian cookies from the delicatessen as a snack for her flight to Romania.
