TOKYO (Reuters) - Tennis star Roger Federer has signed a partnership deal with Fast Retailing Co Ltd’s Uniqlo that will see him represent the Japanese apparel brand beginning with Wimbledon 2018, after wearing the iconic Nike swoosh throughout his career.

Uniqlo said in a statement on Monday that the 20-times Grand Slam champion would represent the brand at all tournaments throughout the year, joining fellow tennis star Kei Nishikori and golfer Adam Scott among its global brand ambassadors.
