Two young tennis players have received a coaching session from British No.1 and US Open winner Emma Raducanu in London despite her being more than 4,000 miles away.

While Sam Clague, 14, and T'nae Diamond Paisley, 12, were both at the All England Club's Community Tennis Centre London, the British number one was in Abu Dhabi. The world's first holographic lesson, where Ms Raducanu gave tips on technique and answered questions, was delivered over Vodafone's 5G network.

This meant that there was no lag during the live session, despite the 4,370 miles (7,030 km) between them.

Their holographic training session offers a glimpse into how advancing technology could revolutionise tennis coaching, according to futurologist Dr Ian Pearson.

He said: 'Seeing the tech in action with Emma Raducanu coaching the next generation of British players is just the first of so many real-life applications of this tech in sports across the world.'

With no lag time, the possibilities are endless. I'd love to hear of use cases in healthcare or other markets.
