We were all the more amused by an anecdote recently shared by Roger Federer, when he said that someone had recently confused him with Rafael Nadal. You won’t believe how this story ended.

Roger Federer recently hosted an “AskRF” event on Twitter where you could ask Federer a question using the #AskRF hashtag and he would answer it. One of the participants asked Federer if he had ever been confused with other tennis players. Federer immediately answered that question by sharing a funny anecdote of a May Formula 1 race he attended.

Roger Federer confessed a hilarious story involving someone who thought he was Rafael Nadal. “It happened one day in Formula 1. The guy asked, ‘Can I take a picture with you, Mr Nadal?’ I told him I’m not Mr. Nadal. He apologized and left without taking a photo,” Federer wrote on Twitter.
