Federer shows support for Basel in Chelsea clash

World of Sport

Tennis legend Roger Federer was born and raised in Basel, so it’s no surprise that he would attend their biggest ever match, the Europa League semi-final against Chelsea.

Sporting a trendy leather bomber jacket, Fed seems to be having a good enough time as he watches on with a friend, although he is a touch late getting back to his seat after half-time.

Unfortunately for the Swiss master, his heroes lost 2-1 thanks to a free-kick from David Luiz in the dying seconds, although if football took a leaf out of his own sport’s book, HawkEye would never have allowed Basel’s dodgy penalty equaliser to stand.
