Roger Federer delighted by ‘unexpected’ Laureus Sports Award
Roger Federer won the Sportsman and Comeback titles at the 18th edition of the prestigious Laureus Sports awards ceremony. Speaking after the end of the ceremony, Federer said, “This is a very special moment for me. Everyone knows how highly I value my Laureus Awards, so to win another would have been wonderful, but to win two is a truly unique honour. It was so unexpected. I am delighted and I would like to thank the Laureus Academy for all their support. It was an unforgettable year for me, to come back after a very difficult 2016, and these awards just make it even more memorable. When I won my first Laureus Award back in 2005, if you had said I would have ended up winning six I would not have believed you. It’s been an amazing ride. (Video credit: SNTV).
