Switzerland have honoured tennis legend Roger Federer by creating a 20-franc silver coin with his image on it.The 38-year-old, frequently rated as the greatest men's tennis player of all time, is pictured in the coin in the initial stages of serving his trademark one-handed backhand.
This is the first time that Swissmint, the official mint of the country, has created a commemorative coin in honor of a person.
Federer tweeted about the honour. "Thank you Switzerland and Swissmint for this incredible honor and privilege," he said. He also gave a cheeky reply to Switzerland's Tourism's congratulatory tweet, "Thanks, Fed's or tail?".
