TENNIS ace Emma Raducanu stars in a special edition of Beano honouring Britain’s young sporting stars.
The US Open winner, 19, is a Deliveroops driver.
She is shown on the cover with her racket, asking: “Who smashed 2021?”
Emma tells Dennis: “There’s nothing I like better than making people happy with my ace deliveries!”
Diver Matty Lee, 23, who won gold in the Tokyo Olympics, also features.
Adam Peaty and Maisie Summers-Newton power Dennis down the river Thames while Olympic gold medallists Tom Daley and Matty show him how to dive away from the clutches of the mayor.
A timely lift on Sky Brown’s skateboard; an accurate shot by Bukayo Saka; and nifty routines taught by Olympic gymnasts Jennifer and Jessica Gadirova also help Dennis escape.
In a hilarious finale, Emma eventually delivers Dennis safely to his family for Christmas behind the backs of the mayor and his son – and joins them for Christmas Day dinner.
The limited edition can be found in this week’s Beano, on sale from today.
Four unique gold leaf covers starring Emma Raducanu, Matty Lee, Maisie Summers-Newton and Sky Brown will be sold off to raise funds for charity Save the Children.
