He may have bowed out of the Austalian Open to Novak Djokovic, but Roger Federer can claim one miracle shot that led to a man in a wheelchair standing up to applaud!

Djokovic produced tennis Federer would have been proud of in his prime as the world number one outclassed the Swiss master again to reach his sixth Australian Open final.

But Federer did produce one moment of magic that led to a standing ovation, and if you look closely at the end, it even prompted a man in a wheelchair to rise to his feet.
