Roger Federer is no stranger to performing superhuman feats on the tennis court so it wasn’t a surprise when he and Milos Raonic were joined by a couple of superheros during ‘Kids Day’ ahead of the Australian Open.

As the two tennis stars limbered up in front of a packed arena, Marvel heroes Spider-Man and Thor had the chance to show off their skills with the racket during the family-friendly event.

Federer teamed up with the web-swinging wall-crawler as Raonic had a helping hand from Norse God Thor.

Caroline Wozniacki and Novak Djokovic also joined in with the activities during the light-hearted event in Melbourne.

The action-packed annual ‘Kids Day’ saw a huge turnout as the crowd were treated to dancing, mini-games and the main stars themselves on Saturday.

The weekend event was free to all spectators who have a Open ticket, ahead of the Grand Slam tournament next week.

Federer will be looking to defend his Australian Open title once the event begins on Monday.

The Open has already seen a number of high-profile stars pull out due to injury as Jo Konta, Andy Murray and Serena Williams are unable to compete.
