Malawi (Africa): Tennis star Roger Federer yesterday swapped his racket for a pair of scissors to cut the ribbon at a new childcare centre in Malawi funded by his foundation.

About 10 kilometres (six miles) west of the capital Lilongwe, the windswept village of Lundu has neither water or electricity, let alone basic education facilities.
But the new centre, Federer predicted, would be a "pre-school of excellence and an important milestone" in the lives of children.
"Too many children are waiting for good pre-schools and early childhood development centres," the 17-time Grand Slam champ told officials and villagers at the opening.
