It all started in Balham. Tony and his friend are watching the England football team play the little-known eastern european state of Moldova. For no reason, the pair argue about how good Tony is at tennis. A bet is made: that Tony can't beat all eleven members of the Moldovan football team at tennis. And with the loser agreeing to strip naked on Balham High Road and sing the Moldovan national anthem, it was too good to resist.
