New Delhi, Jan 20: Poor Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli suffered backlash on Twitter for no fault of theirs. The husband-wife duo's click with tennis great Roger Fedrer was the reason they suffered the wrath of the Twitterati. Read on to know what went wrong.
After leading India to two historic series victories Down Under, India skipper Virat Kohli wrapped up his Australian summer in "style" by meeting legendary tennis star Roger Federer at the Rod Laver Arena here Saturday. Taking a day off he had taken wife Anushka to watch Australian Open. There he bumped into Federer, who was there at the Arena despite not having a match on day 6. He readily posed with the Kohli and Anushka.
Excited Australian Open posted the picture of trio with caption: "Three legends, one photo" .
This set the Twitter on fire. Twitterati were furious on how Anushka can be termed a legend.
Kohli, who donned the spectator's hat alongside wife Anushka Sharma, watched defending champion Novak Djokovic beat Denis Shapovalov in the men's singles third-round match and Serena Williams storm into the fourth round of women's singles.
Kohli took to social media to post a picture of Federer, himself and Anushka.
"What a day at the Australian open. An amazing way to finish the Australian summer. Forever grateful #ausopen," Kohii tweeted.
The official twitter handle of the Australian Open also tweeted a picture of the trio, who were all smiles captioning it as "three legends, one photo."
Federer, who is the defending champion at the Australian Open, has already sealed a place in the last 16 of the competition with a win against American Taylor Fritz on Friday.
Kohli on Friday led India to a 2-1 over Australia, their first against the hosts in a bilateral ODI series Down Under.
India also became the first country to return from Australia without losing a single series, having won the Test series 2-1 and drawn the T20 Internationals 1-1.
