Fedex Meets The Federer Express
What he said:
"I have never named a locomotive before, let alone one bearing my own name.”
Fedex or the Federal Express has a locomotive named after him—The Federer Express.
Roger Federer was honoured by National Suisse with a locomotive bearing his name and image.
Federer is the Suisse’s brand ambassador.
The National Suisse will contribute to the Roger Federer fund for every kilometre the locomotive travels.
Jeannine Pilloud, Head of the Passenger Division at SBB railways, said:
“Our passengers are world champions in rail travel. Now they can look forward to meeting Roger Federer, the best tennis player of all time, on all inter-city routes.”
What he really meant:
“How would you like to do the Loco-motion with me?”
What he definitely didn’t:
“Why can’t my sponsors be normal and name an airplane or a ship for me?”
