British No 1 Johanna Konta has revealed what she has been doing during self-isolation, and it involves spending time with her boyfriend, cleaning and doing jigsaws.

The tennis star tends to keep her boyfriend away from the limelight as she feels it is 'really weird' to talk about him.

But who is the mystery man? 

His name is Jackson Wade and he is a music producer and businessman. 

The pair are believed to have been dating since 2017 when Konta became Miami Open champion after beating Caroline Wozniacki. 

In an interview last year with Hello, Konta said that Wade 'empowers her'.

Wade is not only a producer but co-owns a business called 90SecondStory, which is UK-based and makes films and videos for other businesses.

Whilst Konta is unsure when she will next compete due to the coronavirus outbreak, she says she is coping well whilst self-isolating. 

She told Telegraph Sport: "I got back from the US about 10 days ago, so I haven’t been home that long. Ask me in six weeks! It’s just me and [boyfriend] Jackson here, and Bono [their miniature dachshund]. 

"I’ve been organising the general state of my flat – spring-cleaning, clearing out closets, digging things out from behind bookshelves. I’ve just now put a 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle on the table so I’m gonna give that a go."
