Roger Federer's final match will see him play alongside old rival Rafael Nadal in the Laver Cup doubles on Friday.

According to BBC Sport, the pair will represent Team Europe.

Federer, a 20-time Grand Slam winner, said last week he would retire at the team event, which starts on Friday.

The 41-year-old Swiss said it would be wonderful to play alongside Spaniard Nadal, 36, who has 22 major titles.

Federer has struggled with a knee problem and does not feel able to play singles.

The Laver Cup, named after Australian great Rod Laver, was Federer's brainchild and Europe have won all four previous editions of the event which sees a total of 10 singles and two doubles matches.
