Former tennis professional Andrew Castle has warned tennis could potentially be the next sport to be hit by claims of historical abuse.
Speaking on his LBC radio show, Castle warned there was an unwelcome culture in the sport that existed which "may still be there and it [may] need to be investigated".
"We used to talk in changing rooms and with each other about it and you would say and there would be knowing glances that somebody was a bit of a wrong 'un," said Castle.
"That was just what people lived with, it was the culture of the time. There's no way I can name names now. There's no way that even back then I could have pointed the finger and said, 'that person isn't right'.
"I wouldn't have done that publicly because it would have shattered their reputation and it would have cast aspersions on them and their character.
"Have I got specific examples, was I abused myself? No. Did I hear about things, did we think people weren't right in the game? Absolutely.
"What we are going to get, football started it, across sport is something so massive.
"If you're going to name names, you better give evidence, but the culture was there, it may still be there and it [may] need to be investigated."
