Greatest Tennis Player in the world

Roger Federer astounded crew members at a photo shoot with a trick shot in which he knocked a drink bottle off a man's head with his serve.

The six-times Wimbledon champion's trick was similar to the legend of William Tell who was said to have shot an apple off his son's head with a crossbow.

The video of the amazing stunt has attracted nearly 560,000 hits on video-sharing website YouTube in just two days, reports the Daily Telegraph.

The start of the video, filmed during a Gillette and British Skin Foundation photo shoot, shows the World Number Two apparently discussing a recent match with a crew member.

To prove a point about the accuracy of his serve, Federer challenges the man to stand with the bottle on his head before crashing two pinpoint serves directly onto it, sending it flying while leaving the man unharmed.

After successfully repeating the trick, the besuited star remarks: "What's next? That was good, right?"

One viewer commented: "All the people who think this is real obviously have never played tennis let alone serving. It is not possible to have such precision especially when it's twice and there is a human involved. This is FAKE!"

But another replied: "You really think this is fake? Yes the greatest player of all time can't hit a can from 20 feet? You guys are a joke. Of course its real."

Stupid People Ask Stupid Questions!!!

A woman rang her local council to ask if a car park was haunted as her vehicle had 'moved' to another parking space while she was shopping.

Another member of the public rang his local authority to ask if he could roll up a zebra crossing, according to a survey of the most bizarre requests received by town halls.

Other queries that had officials scratching their heads included someone who wanted to know if they could register the death of a person who was still alive, and a request to be told the plot of She Stoops to Conquer, an 18th century play.

An East Dorset resident rang the town hall's tourist information centre while in Cologne, Germany, to find out why his bus hadn't arrived.

The same office received a call from a resident temporarily in South Korea, who wanted a Christmas turkey ordered from the local butcher.

Meanwhile a German man turned up at a council premises in Northumberland demanding to be given political asylum, and police had to be called when he refused to accept that all Europeans are free to enter Britain.

A caller to Surrey council complained that the phone number they had been given for their library was out of order - only to be told that '0900 1800' were in fact its opening hours.

Baroness Eaton, chairman of the Local Government Association which compiled the survey, said: "These examples show just how broad a range of issues council staff deal with each day. Councils literally have to be ready for anything from the mundane to the mind-boggling.

"While the vast majority of calls fall within the bounds of councils' usual responsibilities, there are occasions when call handlers are left baffled."
