What turned out to be a request from Roger Federer has now become a much-followed image-morphing exercise on Twitter.

Federer will be in India for just over three days to feature in the Delhi-leg of the International Premier Tennis League (IPTL) in December, so the 17-time Grand Slam winner requested fans to photoshop his image with the best places to visit.

"I need some help from my supporters in India. I'm only in Delhi for a few days, so can't visit all amazing places that I'd like... Maybe you guys could help #PhotoshopRF? Show me where I should visit and I'll retweet the best pics!," tweeted Federer on Tuesday.

The result was a hilarious mix of images that have been doctored to show Federer charming snakes, taking a dip in the Ganga, playing the sitar, taking part in dandiya, walking on the sand dunes of Rajasthan and also one where he replaces Shah Rukh Khan on the poster of 'Chennai Express'.

Mrs Federer too

Even Federer's wife, Mirka, makes an appearance. The couple is shown posing at the Taj Mahal, like any other tourist in Agra.

Acknowledging the efforts, Federer later tweeted, "You guys are so creative. It's been amazing and so entertaining looking through #PhotoshopRF."
