Daniil Medvedev may be banned from Wimbledon but the world number one was still swinging on grass as he swapped his tennis racket for a golf club on Monday and a game against former Germany midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger.

Russian Medvedev is missing the grasscourt Grand Slam after organisers banned players from his country and Belarus because of Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine, but while Wimbledon dealt with familiar rain delays, Medvedev was soaking up the sun.
