When asked on BBC Five Live’s 606 if he had ‘played the tennis on the Nintendo Wii at all and what [he] thought of it?’, John replied:
No, no. I never did because I’m not a believer in playing the video games, the tennis video games. I think it’s a waste of time, is what I think […] (More angrily:) I’d rather see the kids out there playing, than playing some dumb video game.
