Rafael Nadal completed a thrilling comeback from two sets down against Daniil Medvedev in the Australian Open final. It was just the fourth time the Spaniard has rallied from two sets down and the first time since his fourth-round Wimbledon victory against Mikhail Youzhny in 2007.

The stars — including Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic — took to social media to congratulate the lefty on his record-breaking 21st major title. Australian legend Rod Laver, former World No. 1 Andy Roddick, three-time major winner Stan Wawrinka, WTA icon Billie Jean King and others also shared their praise.

Several athletes from outside of tennis also congratulated Nadal, including football star Toni Kroos, Formula 1 driver George Russell and cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar.
