[WATCH] Cape Town crowd sets new world record at Federer-Nadal showdown
Roger Federer may have defeated Rafael Nadal in their Match in Africa exhibition at Cape Town Stadium on Friday night, but everyone was a winner at the tennis spectacular.
Match organisers confirmed the crowd of 51 954 broke the world record attendance figure for a tennis match set in November 2019 - then Federer beat Germany's Alexander Zverev in Mexico City in front of 42 517 fans.
The Cape Town event raised $3,5-million for the 20-Grand Slam champion's Roger Federer Foundation.
Federer won the three-set contest 6-4, 3-6, 6-3.
Watch the highlights below:
In the doubles curtain raiser, Federer teamed up with Microsoft's Bill Gates to trounce Nadal and South African comedian Trevor Noah 6-3 in a one-set shootout.
Living up to his international reputation, funnyman Trevor Noah stole the show during the doubles encounter and Mzansi couldn't get enough of his antics.
