Roger Federer has taken another swipe at climate activist Greta Thunberg for using his name to promote her agenda against one of his sponsors Credit Suisse.
Swedish environmental activist Thunberg slammed tennis legend for endorsing a bank which invests money in companies that are looking for new fossil fuel deposits.
Recently, the 38-year-old—who is a 20-time Grand Slam winner—endorsed Credit Suisse who have invested a whopping $57 billion in the fossil fuel enterprises.
In a more recent interview with Swiss publication Tages Anzeiger, Federer hit out at being dragged into the spotlight.
“I am sometimes misused for certain purposes,” the 38-year-old said. “When I help one person, I am criticised for not doing it with others. I have reached a point where I have to think carefully about what I am doing. But I also have to be able to overlook criticism. I can’t be everywhere, I can’t do everything. I am also a father and a tennis player. I am aware that I can make a difference, take the microphone and address certain things. But I can’t do that all the time.”
