Roger Federer is such a sport!

 

And the sight of the 36-year-old donning a kilt as he beat a tartan-hat wearing Andy Murray has caused many fans to go berserk.

Andy Murray faced Federer in a charity match in Glasgow on Tuesday night, which the World No 2 won 6-3, 3-6, 10-6.

During an interview after taking the first set, Federer joked: "If anyone brings me a kilt, I will put it on."

A female fan then appeared at the side of the court willing to give him hers. Federer played one game in the kilt.

Later Murray put on a tartan-hat with ginger wig Federer presented him with midway through the tie-break.
