Roger bloody Federer has won a record eighth Wimbledon men’s singles title, beating Marin Cilic 6-3, 6-1, 6-4. We would say it cements his status as the GOAT male tennis player, but to be honest, he already was.

The 35-year-old’s victory simply shouldn’t have been possible: last year, he made the decision to take a whole six months off the professional circuit to recover from what seemed to be a career-slowing knee injury.
