Serena Williams and Olympia enjoy mother-daughter day out for tea on Wimbledon Finals afternoon

Tennis legend Serena Williams swapped her tennis racket for tea on Saturday afternoon as she and daughter Olympia, four, got stuck into a traditional afternoon tea in London.

While the Wimbledon women's final got underway at the All England Club, Serena was making the most of her time in the English capital as she and Olympia enjoyed a lavish afternoon tea with all the trimmings.

In a short clip shared on Instagram, Serena could be seen pointing out all of the iconic delicacies laid out on the table before her, including scones with clotted cream and jam, delicate petit fours, and much to her own delight, cucumber sandwiches.

During the video, Serena can be heard describing the sights before her as she says: “And high tea in England. Lovely crumpets and biscuits and jam and butter and oh, cucumber sandwiches – yay!”

While it has not been confirmed which luxury venue Serena and her daughter had been attending for this afternoon tea, it is the second time in a week that Olympia has been treated to a high end outing, after she and her parents attended a Bridgerton themed high tea at The Lanesborough, a five star hotel in central London

At four years old, Olympia may be a bit young yet to have found herself embroiled in the drama of the Netflix series, but she certainly appeared to be a fan of the food as she was spotted happily tucking in to a variety of dishes at the meal.

Alongside the traditional offerings of scones and plenty of fruit preserves, there were also a variety of Bridgerton themed delicacies on offer including pastries and cakes with names such as The Queen's Diamond and The Lady Whistledown

Beaming in a selection of snaps shared on social media, the youngster appeared to be enjoying every minute of her time in London as she got to explore the city alongside her parents – with one fan even joking she was a “bit young to be knocking back those mimosas".

The trip to England came as Serena made her return to the Wimbledon court, twenty years after first claiming the title that helped to launch her impressive and highly skilled career.

Serena sadly missed out on a place in the Wimbledon final this year after suffering a defeat during her first match of the competition – but she didn’t let that stop her from making the most of her time in the UK, as she and her family continued to explore the sights, sounds and tastes of the city.
