Federer reacts to shock Basel victory over Man Utd

Tennis superstar Roger Federer sent congratulations to Basel following their unlikely win over Manchester United in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The Swiss Maestro, born in Basel, has won his home tournament no less than eight times with his success on the courts of the world well documented.

His love for football, however, not so much.

But that changed on Wednesday, as Basel hosted the Premier League giants at St Jakob- Park, where Federer has watched his team before.

Basel’s Michael Lang netted a late winner for the home side for a memorable 1-0 win over the Red Devils and Federer was quick to congratulate them on twitter.
