The Swiss Maestro has also made his country proud by winning the Olympics gold medal in the doubles competition back in Beijing 2008. A few years ago, Switzerland Tourism had also appointed Hindi film actor Ranveer Singh as its brand ambassador for the Indian market, in an attempt to woo tourists from the country.
