World number one Roger Federer on Monday was appointed Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF, the United Nations Children's Fund.

Federer follows in a tradition of high profile figures, including soccer player David Beckham and actors Vanessa Redgrave, the late Danny Kaye and Audrey Hepburn, dedicated to bringing attention and resources to the world's most vulnerable children.

"I am very, very honored and proud," Swiss Federer told a news conference at UNICEF headquarters. "It's really a privilege for me to continue this tradition with UNICEF."

Federer, the holder of the Wimbledon, US Open and Australian Open Grand Slam titles, has already been involved in projects to help children through his own foundation and its work in South Africa, where his mother is from.
