Roger Federer and his wife Mirka announced that they donated 1 million Swiss francs ($ 1.02 million) “for the most vulnerable families” in Switzerland due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Federer wrote on his social networks that “we all live a difficult time and no one should be left helpless.”
The announcement was his first post on his Twitter and Instagram accounts in more than three weeks.
Federer had surgery on his right knee five weeks ago and hopes to play again in June, for the turf tournaments. Men’s tennis has been paralyzed due to the spread of the virus.
Federer added that both he and his wife hope that “others will join in helping more families in need.” Ap
