A post shared by Roger Federer (@rogerfederer)

Considered to be the big 4 of modern professional tennis with 66 Grand Slams between them, Federer posted a black tie selfie featuring fellow tennis stars Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic, with the photo garnering over 2.2 million likes so far.

Taken across from the iconic tower bridge on the night of the Laver Cup’s gala dinner, Federer nonchalantly captioned the photo “heading to dinner with some friends”, to the joy of thousands (if not millions) of tennis fans around the world.

While it is amazing to see all of those legends in just one photo, what is truly astounding in it is its net worth, with the combined net worth of the four players coming out to $1,155,000,000: that means that Federer’s one selfie is worth over $1 billion.

Breathalysers set to be introduced in UK nightclubs in attempt to increase safety

Breathalysers set to be introduced in UK nightclubs in attempt to increase safety

Nightclubs and alcohol go together like bread & butter and, while taking care of oneself and limiting one’s alcohol consumption is strongly recommended, sometimes it is just inevitable.

Luckily, authorities in the United Kingdom are aware of this situation and are set to introduce breathalysers in nightclubs in an attempt to increase safety in the UK’s entertainment scene.

Kicking off the project with increased monitoring in Durham, nightclub staff will test potential partygoers with breathalyser to determine if they are fit enough to enter the club. Pre-drinking in particular has posed as somewhat of a problem as the culture of excessively loading on alcohol before heading to the club in an attempt to cut costs has resulted in the heavy inebriation of partygoers before the fact.

While the decision will not affect the amount of consumption from within the clubs, the idea is to prevent drunk individuals from entering beforehand.

Should such a strategy be implemented in Malta?
