Roger Federer has been touring with Alexander Zverev in Latin America and the German expressed his wish to meet the great Diego Maradona.
Unfortunately, the soccer legend couldn’t make it, but he didn’t miss the chance to send to Roger a heartfelt video message that was broadcasted in the stadium after the exhibition match between Federer and Zverev.
Diego said: “Hello Master, machine, like I call you. You were, you are, and will be the greatest. There is no other like you. I want you to know that if you have any kind of trouble in my country, you can call me and tell me what you need.”
