Swiss tennis legend Roger Federer on Wednesday said that he and his wife Mirka have donated 1 million Swiss Francs in the fight against coronavirus. Federer said in an Instagram post that the donation is being made towards the "most vulnerable families" in Switzerland.
"Our contribution is just a start. We hope that others might join in supporting more families in need. Together we can overcome this crisis! Stay healthy,” Federer wrote on Instagram.
