Thanks to GTT reader Madame Bovary for the heads up!
Roger Federer dropped in on members of the Liverpool Football Club yesterday. The team is currently training in Bad Ragaz, “a quaint village shadowed by the mountains of east Switzerland.”
On Twitter, the team said Federer “came across very humble.”
Here’s the full story from Liverpool’s website:
Wimbledon champ Roger Federer popped into the team hotel. The racket man knows all about Liverpool, being a big fan of FC Basel – against who we drew 3-3 in 2002 to crash out of the Champions League. The lads didn’t seem to hold it against Roger, who apologised for interrupting their lunch before agreeing to pictures with each and every player. Carra took a particular interest in a true sporting icon.
This is Federer with Jamie Carragher:
Is it just me, or has Roger had the same euphoric grin on his face ever since he won Roland Garros? Love it! And the shirt. . and the hair. . .wait, what was I talking about again?
