Roger Federer showed he is a man who knows how to live the high life as he wound down after his Wimbledon victory with a luxury holiday in Sardinia.
While his rival Andy Murray battled the rain in Britain, signing autographs for fans and shopping for groceries in a damp and grey London, Federer jetted off with his wife for a holiday in the upmarket Italian resort of Costa Smeralda.
The man who earns £30m a year through his record-breaking sponsorship took his wife Mirka on a day-long yacht cruise, setting sail from Porto Cervo off the northern coast of the Italian island.

As a man celebrating his seventh Wimbledon victory and his first Grand Slam win in two years, he looked fittingly relaxed, and the two, dressed in laidback summery clothes, loaded up their boat with supplies before setting off for a cruise in the jewel blue waters.
The couple left their twin daughters Myla Rose and Charlene Riva, two, behind, enjoying some well-deserved time together – no doubt much needed in the wake of what would have been an intensive training schedule for Federer pre-Wimbledon.
