A Throne of His Own

The A-League Champions may well have to look for a new name for their trophy.

The reason being that Japanese tennis player Kei Nishikori has just added a golden toilet to his trophy cabinet.

Nishikori who has become his country’s best male tennis player and has risen to fourth in the World Rankings. He was the first Japanese player to make the final of the US Open. Amongst his many tennis trophies he now has a unique item having recently received a model of a toilet from porcelain company Lixil.

“We gave him a miniature golden toilet as we sealed a partnership with him.” A Lixil spokesperson is quoted as saying.

The toilet apparently sits in its own case measuring 30cm square. The paperwork having been completed Lixil’s logo will appear on Nishikori’s clothing through till August 2018.
