Roger Federer and his wife Mirka donate 1 million francs to COVID-19


Twenty-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer announced a donation of one million Swiss francs (CAD 1.46 million) with his wife Mirka on Wednesday to help families in Switzerland during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“This is a difficult time for everyone and no one should be left behind. Mirka and I have personally decided to give one million Swiss francs to the most vulnerable families in Switzerland. Our contribution is just the beginning, “Federer wrote in a Twitter statement. “We hope others can join in supporting more families in need. Together we can overcome this crisis! Stay healthy! ”

Federer, 38, is currently recovering from a knee operation he suffered on February 20. The 2009 French Open champion was first banned from the major tournament this year with a four-month period to return, but could potentially play with the tournament pushed back to September.

Federer is currently the fourth tennis player in the world.
