After Roger Federer won his first Wimbledon title in 2003, thus becoming the first Swiss Grand Slam champion, his country decided to show its appreciation by gifting him a cow.

After Pakistan won the recent ODI series against India 2-1, each member of the cricket team was given a camel as a gift, by a Baluchistan minister. The minister kindly added that the camels would be delivered to each player rather than having to be collected from him, but also warned that the players’ homes would need high doors.

No really.
