This guy plays football for his local team, FC Echichens, a 5th tier team in the Swiss Football league and is also a keen follower of the BPL where he supports Newcastle United. He was the Swiss ambassador for the 2008 European Football championships. He also has been named Laureus World Sportsman of the Year on two occasions, and also one of the UNESCO champions for sport alongside Pele, Bubka, and Henin to name a few during his illustrious career.
Of course (yes, here is the twist every quiz question has), the reason he is so famous is not so much due to football as due to _______, where he is the only one from his country to have won World Championships in the sport.
Who it is?
P.S. Too many hints in here, so please avoid googling 🙂
