FC Basel's most famous supporter Roger Federer could not contain his delight after the Swiss side came from behind to stun Chelsea 2-1 in the Champions League.

After falling a goal behind on the stroke of half-time, Basel hit back with two goals in the final 19 minutes from Mohamed Salah and Marco Strellar to collect a famous victory at Stamford Bridge.

And record 17-time grand slam champion Federer, who has been seen in the stands of Basel's home ground St. Jakob Park to support his side, took to Twitter to express his happiness over the win.
