THE MOST RESPECTABLE PEOPLE IN THE WORLD
According to a recent poll, Roger Federer has the second-best worldwide reputation of any public figure, behind only former South African president Nelson Mandela.
The Reputation Institute surveyed the public`s respect, admiration and trust in 54 public figures. Of the 50,000 people in 25 countries polled, Federer came in second, just ahead of Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and Richard Branson.
Federer`s on-court success and off-court charitable work were cited as reasons for his high ranking.
