Tennis model Fiona Walker proud over Athena display


The woman whose cheeky lift of her tennis skirt became famous on the Athena poster has said she is proud it has been included in a Birmingham exhibition.

In 1976, Fiona Walker's then photographer-boyfriend Martin Elliot persuaded the 18-year-old to let him take a shot of her on court hitching up her dress to reveal a bare bottom.

It has been included in Court on Canvas, an exhibition looking at the inspiration lawn tennis has given artists, at The Barber Institute of Fine Arts in Birmingham.

The exhibition, which opened on Friday, runs until 18 September.
