The All England Club tell Roger Federer to change his orange trainers for his second-round match at Wimbledon.

The All England Club have told seven-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer to change his trainers.

The Swiss pro debuted a pair of orange-soled Nikes for his first-round victory over Victor Hanescu, but officials are believed to have ordered him to wear different footwear.

Wimbledon is famous for players keeping to the traditional white outfits, and Federer's trainers are said to be against the All England Club's clothing policy, according to the Daily Mail.

Federer is expected to don new footwear in his second-round match against Sergiy Stakhovsky this afternoon.
