Melissa Johnson

Melissa Johnson was the first streaker to take to the grass at Wimbledon during the Mens singles final in 1996. The 23-year-old London student, climbed over a barrier at one end of the court and dashed the length of its periphery -passing in front of finalists Richard Krajicek and MaliVai Washington as they posed near the net for photographs. Melissa, who has been working as a catering assistant at Wimbledon during her summer holidays, was topless and wore only a tiny maid’s apron, which she lifted up. She was quickly escorted off the court near the Royal Box by two policemen. Both players broke into laugher, as did most of the 14,000 fans.
