Federer's live TV 'blunder'

18 April 2012, 16:45

Johannesburg - Diego Maradona must be giggling through his teeth upon hearing that tennis star Roger Federer doesn’t know who Neymar is.

Maradona's great rival, Pele, has recently labelled Brazilian soccer star Neymar as the “best player in the world”.

According to a story published on trace.tv, the tennis star made a bit of a blunder live on Brazilian television after being given the Brazilian national team jersey signed by Neymar. Judging from his reaction, Federer had no idea who the Seleçao wonder-kid was.

Slightly taken aback, Federer asked: Neymar? Is he any good? Sensing a sudden unease, he then tried to make up for it by explaining that for him: “Brazil has always had the best team in the world”.

MultiChoice has announced that TRACE Sports will be added to the DStv platform on Tuesday, 17 April at 18:00.

TRACE Sports is a new format channel dedicated to revealing intimate behind the scenes of the world’s favourite sporting heroes.
