Roger Federer is used to breaking records, but breaking cameras is another thing altogether.

The Swiss star took to Twitter to apologise after he heard that a camera was broken during his second-round match at the French Open against Diego Schwartzman:

Apparently a cameraman's lens broke yesterday during my match #sorry #💪🎾💥✨ pic.twitter.com/Eaq8ookPqv

While the lens did break, if it was a professional's they are likely to have insurance for these kinds of accidents.

And more to the point, the resulting image is pretty special.
