Wimbledon winner Roger Federer has been given an unusual homecoming gift to mark his achievement - a cow!
The Swiss star received the beast after accepting a standing ovation from a 6,000 crowd in Gstaad's Roy Emerson Arena.
Federer, 22, whose father, Robert, missed out on a trip to Wimbledon so he could feed his son's cat, was delighted with the latest addition to the menagerie.
"It is a great idea, very funny," he laughed.
Mind you, it's one thing milking the applause...
Good golly, it's Molly
Just as we were about to write off Britain's hopes of producing a female tennis champion, one has come out of nowhere.
Only problem is, she's 85 - and it's
table tennis she has excelled in.
Molly Hawkins claimed gold in the over-85 women's tournament at the European Table Tennis Championships in Italy.
The former England international told the Gloucester Citizen: "This is really the icing on the cake of my career.
"Many people think it's funny that I am still playing international table tennis at the age of 85 but I shall go on as long as I can."
Molly's win was slightly soured by a few disputed calls in her semi-final victory over a German opponent.
"I couldn't argue because I couldn't understand any of them!" she confessed.
"There were hundreds of German supporters jeering and heckling - it was like a football match and my husband John got quite ratty about it."
We should all count our blessings there wasn't a streaker.
