hugh jackman

We all know that Hugh Jackman -- the one and only Wolverine -- is a splendid actor, but how many of us know that the Australian is a great sportsperson as well? A video had gone viral couple of years back of Jackman facing Shane Warne on the nets and smashing sixes as well.

Now, it seems Jackman, 48, is willing to try his hands with tennis in a match against the best of the game!

A conversation between Logan and tennis legend Roger Federer has been winning the internet this week. It all started at the Met Gala 2017 event in New York on Monday May 1.

Federer, fresh after winning the Australian Open 2017, posted pics as he and wife Mirka Federer graced the event. Federer turned quite some attention as he was draped in a Tuxedo with a huge king cobra at the rear.

Jackman, meanwhile, was present with his wife Deborra-Lee Furness.

It all started when Federer posted a snap from the event, which featured Jackman as well. Federer wrote: "Must study competition. There be mutants here"

To this, Hugh Jackman had an epic reply: "Bring it Roger Federer! Novak Djokovic, you in? Just need a 4th and it's on."

Now, in case, Jackman has missed it, one of Federer's photos is alongside NFL legend and the man behind New England Patriots' splendid comeback win this Super Bowl 51 -- Tom Brady.

The caption read: "Found a potential doubles partner inside Met Gala."
