Put rivalries aside for one second and become a mannequin. That's what tennis players are currently doing anyway.

In fact, it's what a lot of the sport stars are doing these days it seems.

The world’s greatest tennis players put their rackets to one side to complete the fast-growing internet sensation this past week ahead of the World Tour Finals, held in London.

The sensation is yet another viral video that has taken the internet by storm, and following in the footsteps of several sports stars and sports teams, the tennis players have got in on the action.

This comes just days after Andy Murray surpassed his arch rival, but good pal Novak Djokovic to the world number one spot.

However, they put their rivalries aside for the moment, and took part in the internet craze that is the mannequin challenge.

Unlike the Ice Bucket Challenge, this craze doesn’t support any charity or any organisation, it simply exists to make people smile. It’s a laugh, and that is all.

It symbolises the power of the internet, as this craze began when a school in America uploaded a video of them doing the challenge.

Tennis' version of the challenge sees the likes of; Marin Cilic, Stan Wawrinka, Gael Monfils, Milos Ranoic, Kei Nishikori, Murray and Djokovic all star, with the latter two posing for a selfie.

It really is just a Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal away from being an all-time great tennis mannequin challenge.

The video then ends with all the tennis stars moving forward to join Murray and Djokovic for the selfie.

It’s gone from there, to Hillary Clinton, and now to the peak with Andy Murray and co.
