Swiss tennis star Roger Federer has withdrawn from the Tokyo Olympics after suffering a "setback" with his knee during the grass-court season.

Federer, who has 20 Grand Slam titles, was beaten at Wimbledon in the quarterfinals by Hubert Hurkacz 6-3, 7-6 (4), 6-0.

Eight time Wimbledon champion had missed the 2016 Rio Olympics also due to a knee injury.
