Legend Meets Legend: Roger Federer sees Pele
Sao Paulo: World No.2 Roger Federer, who is the brand ambassador and participant of the Gilette Tennis exhibition tournament, took some time to visit former Football great Pele.

"Today I had the great honour of meeting the legendary Pele," the Swiss world No.2 said on his Facebook page on Saturday. "He was so nice and his energy is amazing."

With Pele beside him, Federer posed for a photo while holding a 1960s-era all-blue Brazil shirt emblazoned with the Santos legend's signature, reports Xinhua.

In the same image, Pele held a tennis shirt presented to him by the 17-time grand slam winner with a personal message written on the front.

"I love playing tennis and today one of the greats of the game dropped by to say hello. Roger Federer, you are a champion on the court and in life," Pele wrote on his Twitter page.

The exhibition tournament in Sao Paulo also involves Maria Sharapova, Victoria Azarenka, Serena Williams, Caroline Wozniacki, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Tommy Robredo, Tommy Haas and Thomaz Bellucci.

Federer had earlier announced that one of his prime objectives of his first visit to Brazil was to meet the three time World Cup winner.
