Is it real or fake?

That’s the Internet buzz currently surrounding tennis ace Roger Federer’s amazing ‘William Tell style’ trick shot.

So, would like you to judge as the world’s top player is seen smashing a metal can off a man’s head, not once, but twice with a serve while shooting a commercial for Gillette.

The tennis superstar won’t reveal if it is the real deal, but with his amazingly accurate 100 mph serve - who knows?

His official website carried a link to the commercial which is a tribute to the tale of William Tell, the Swiss legend who used a bow and arrow to split an apple on his son’s head.

Following his opening match at the Cincinnati Masters on Wednesday night, Federer was asked directly whether the video is real.

'Not saying that,' the champion from Switzerland replied.

He then told the fan: “A magician doesn't tell how his tricks work.”

But with an amazing 16 Grand Slam events under his belt to date for Federer - who is considered by many to be the greatest player of all time – no feat with his tennis racket would seem impossible.
