The former Indian opener, Virender Sehwag is back in the headlines and it’s not because of cricket. Sehwag covers almost all popular sports on his Twitter account and likes to make offbeat tweets on the trending topics. He stays in the spotlight with funny tweets, and this time he made one on tennis legend and 8 times Wimbledon winner Swiss champ Roger Federer.
While the 38-year-old is yet to open up about being rebuffed by BCCI over the Team India coaching post, he took a unique take on Federer’s 19th Grand Slam win.
On Tuesday, Virender Sehwag tweeted a picture of Greatest of All Time (GOAT) with two cows that he won during his career. In 2003, when Federer won the Swiss Open he was gifted a cow by the organizers and called it Juliette.
He won another cow in 2013, which was named Desiree. And sure enough, Virender Sehwag remembered, as he shared pictures of the GOAT milking a cow and standing with his prize.
Sehwag wrote that he was happy to see Federer’s love for cows. “Cow love of the legend Roger Federer. So wonderful to see,” he wrote as the caption of the image. The tweet got a massive response and some agreed with Sehwag and praised, while others were not very impressed.
But what Sehwag doesn’t know is, the first picture is a younger Roger Federer milking Juliette, a gift in the Swiss Open in 2003 (the second picture) was slaughtered later.
Sports Illustrated reported that the cow was cared for by a farmer in Gstaad. Roy Emerson, the legendary Australian tennis player who has a home in Gstaad, was quoted by the Telegraph saying, “Juliette gave birth to a calf, and then she wasn’t producing enough milk, so she was slaughtered.”
Here’s the tweet,
