A video showing Roger Federer being stopped by security from entering locker room without wearing his ID card at the Australian Open has surfaced online.

Federer, being the nice guy that he is, duly obliged as he waited for his entourage – who had his accreditation – to come over. They were then let in by the security.

Meanwhile, the 20-time Grand Slam champion has made it to the fourth round without dropping a set. He is scheduled to face Greek young gun Stefanos Tsitsipas on Sunday.

This comes just days after women’s tennis star Maria Sharapova was also stopped by security in the same manner.

Notably, the Australian Open rules demand players to wear their ID cards while accessing restricted areas.

Good piece of work that, isn’t it?
