Twenty-time grand slam champion Roger Federer has been honoured with Laureus World Sportsman of the Year and Comeback of the Year awards at the 2018 ceremony in Monaco. The Swiss fought off competition from Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo and his tennis rival Rafael Nadal to become the Sportsman of the Year. The two award wins for the Swiss brought his career total of Laureus Awards to six, making him the the most decorated Laureus Winner in history. The 36-year-old won the Australian Open and Wimbledon titles in 2017 and became the oldest number one after overcoming a serious knee injury. (Video Courtesy: Laureus)
