Roger Federer and his wife Mirka have donated 1m Swiss francs (£857,000) "for the most vulnerable families in Switzerland" and have called on others to add their support.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Switzerland has imposed a ban on all private and public events and has closed all non-essential businesses until at least 19 April.

"These are challenging times for everyone and nobody should be left behind," Federer, 38, wrote on Instagram.

"Our contribution is just a start.

"We hope that others might join in supporting more families in need. Together we can overcome this crisis! Stay healthy!"

The 20-time Grand Slam champion is the latest in a string of sports stars to pledge money to support those affected by the virus.

Last week, reigning Wimbledon champion Simona Halep announced on Facebook that she would donate money to pay for medical equipment in her home country of Romania.
