Former world No. 1 tennis player Roger Federer has been named the most stylish man in 2016 by GQ magazine.
The 17-time Grand Slam winner, who has been absent from the ATP Tour since a Wimbledon semi-final defeat to Milos Raonic, has joined in the records of GQ most stylish man winners, previously won by Kanye West in 2015 and 2014, Justin Timberlake in 2013, Dermot O’Leary in 2012, and Matt Smith in 2011.

The 35-year-old Swiss tennis ace has won just about everything he can in his sport, and would make his return in January at the Australian Open.
Federer, who won more than 60% of the vote, was able to breeze through the 64-man competition to be crowned as 2016’s style icon; beating One Direction singer Zayn Malik, actor Ryan Gosling, actor Steven Yeun, rapper Kanye West and actor Jared leto before clinching the crown over Tom Hiddleston in the final.
Here are some shots of the tennis great at his sweetest appearance:
