Lewis Hamilton’s high five at Silverstone while Roger Federer wins eighth title

ROGER FEDERER and Lewis Hamilton carved out yet more sporting history yesterday at Wimbledon and Silverstone.

The 35-year-old Federer defeated Marin Cilic 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 to become the first man to lift the trophy eight times at the All England Club.

The Swiss skipped the clay-court season and hinted a lighter workload could see him play into his 40s. ‘I’m working part-time almost. I’m incredibly surprised how well this year is going,’ he said.

‘I don’t know how much longer it’s going to last. Health comes first. If I do that, maybe things are actually possible I didn’t think were.’

Hamilton won the British Grand Prix for a record-equalling fifth time, the perfect response to being criticised for missing a promotional event in London last week.

He said: ‘I have more poles than most. My performances are second to none.

‘If you don’t know now my preparation is mostly on point, I guess you never will.’
