The Champion Returns Home

03.07.2005 | Off Court

Usually the market place in the center of Basel is a quiet place except for two occasions: the annual carneval or the celebrations for Basel's soccer club (FCB). Well, since yesterday there is something to add to the list: Roger's fans celebrating their champion. As Roger stepped onto the balcony of the town hall just after 18.30 yesterday evening he found over 3'000 fans cheering and clapping in delight. A huge wave of enthusiasm went through town and even red and blue batons (the colours of the FCB) were lit. Local politicians held speeches and handed Roger a work of art. FCB players gave Roger a pair of golden soccer shoes (Roger is a big FCB fan and has even joined a training with the first team). It was a very moving moment for Roger and he would like to thank everyone for the enormous support. After dinner with his family and friends he was off to a warm and sunny destination early on Tuesday morning for a more than well deserved holiday.
