One can only marvel at the grace of Roger Federer whilst sat court-side but who knew the greatest tennis player of all time could also be a real danger to your health and your equipment.

Federer registered a convincing 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 win over Argentina's Diego Sebastian Schwartzman in the second round of the Roland Garros but took to twitter after the match to send out an apology.

He tweeted the picture alongside an apology that read: "Apparently a cameraman's lens broke yesterday during my match #sorry"

The camera lens was not the only thing left broken after Federer's win however, he broke a record which cemented him as the first player in tennis history to win at least 60 matches in each Grand Slam.

His record over the years is 73 wins at the Austrailian Open, 60 wins at Rolland Garros, 67 wins at Wimbledon and 67 wins at the US Open.

Yet more astonishing feats from the Swiss Superstar who is looking to add to his collection of Grand Slams which currently stands at 17.
